- Where's the best place to park to see an unmanned launch?
- Delta's, and Atlas'
still launch from Cape Canaveral Air
Station, and are closer to Cocoa Beach. Jetty Park is a county park
with a public campgrounds, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the
channel. It is a great place to see unmanned launches. The day
after a Shuttle launch you can come here and see the SRB's (Solid Rocket Boosters) being towed through this channel, back to the Kennedy Space Center
behind the recovery ships.
- There's a spot along State Route 528 under on of the bridges where
LISATS, the Launch
Information Service and Amateur Television System (a ham radio club)
gathers to watch the launch, and puts the NASA Audio out over a PA System.

This service, provided by SpaceLaunchInfo.Com, links to reports from

unexpected holds in the countdown, or if a launch is "scrubbed" (cancelled) for the day.
