Watch liftoff with daily admission to the visitor complex:


Atlantis North Lawn Viewing Area
Located to the left when approaching Space Shuttle Atlantis®

  • Approximately 6.7 miles/10.8 kilometers from launch pad
  • Included with daily admission
  • Viewing area opens at 8:00 AM
  • See the rocket once it clears the tree line
  • Bleacher seating with live launch commentary and video feed


Important Information:

  • Plan to arrive early! The visitor complex will open for the launch at 8:00 AM. 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.



Availability of upcoming viewing opportunities is dependent upon the scheduled launch time and is subject to NASA and U.S. Space Force approval. Launch date, time, and viewing opportunities are subject to change. Launches can be affected by technical and mechanical issues as well as range operations and weather, either in advance or at the last minute.
