Space Coast

Yep, we were heading north, but as we often do,  we altered course and plans. A new inflatable in being built for us by Novurania in Vero Beach so we've reversed directions and we're heading for Ft. Pierce.

By chance, there was a rocket launch scheduled so we pulled over at Titusville in hopes of catching this monster rocket blastoff. And, as luck would have it, weather postponed the launch and it was reset for Saturday... Today!

Sunrise Titusville

So we've eased down to Cocoa Village and we're, once again, in position to see and experience the Launch of Delta IV Heavy with payload NROL-37

The secretive payload is being launched for the National Reconnaissance Office in support of national defense.

That's one big ass rocket.
