Launch Viewing

Atlantis North Lawn

Located to the left when approaching Space Shuttle Atlantis®


  • See the rocket once it clears the tree line
  • Approximately 7.5 miles / 12 kilometers from the launch pad
  • Viewing area opens at 8:30 AM
  • Included with admission to visitor complex
  • Launch audio, video, and communicator commentary available



Important Information:


  • Plan to arrive early! Kennedy Space Center experiences increased traffic on launch days, and there is construction on SR 405/NASA Causeway and SR 3/Courtenay Parkway resulting in lower speed limits and lane closures. Allow extra time for single-lane roads leading up to the visitor complex.
  • Most visitor complex attractions and exhibits will close at 6:00 PM, with the exception of Space Shuttle Atlantis. Guests viewing the launch may remain at the visitor complex until the launch or a scrub.
