The next rocket launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida is scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday May 3. Launching tomorrow will be the Atlas V, a 206-foot rocket that is supported by five strap-on solid rocket boosters. The two hour launch window for tomorrow’s Atlas V rocket is scheduled for 2:36 pm – 4:36 pm. Tomorrow’s Atlas V rocket will be carrying the second Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) satellite built by Lockheed Martin. This satellite will provide highly secure communications for the United States military.

For those of us who live on the beautiful Space Coast, we are some of the lucky few who are able to witness a rocket launch right from our own beaches and backyards. For visitors, there are many great spots from which to view the rocket launch. For the best seat in the house, take a day trip to Kennedy Space Center (KSC) and view the rocket launch from the Visitor Complex or from KSC’s “prime viewing location”, the Apollo/Saturn V Center, which is part of the KSC Tour. Viewing from the Apollo/Saturn V Center will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Ticket information for Kennedy Space Center is available here: Kennedy Space Center Ticket Info. If you would rather watch from a little bit further away, any spot along the Indian River or on the beach will be great, as well as Playalinda Beach, the Cocoa Beach Pier, or anyplace along the NASA Causeway.

Let’s hope the weather forecast stays favorable for tomorrow’s launch! Although we miss watching the manned space shuttles launch from KSC, the rocket launches are still absolutely spectacular, magnificent, and breathtaking. Don’t miss Thursday’s Atlas V rocket launch!
