Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex will offer a special launch viewing opportunity as the SpaceX Falcon Heavy GOES-U takes flight on June 25.

Viewing the launch from the main campus of the visitor complex will be included with admission.

The Atlantis North Lawn and the Gateway Pavilion will be set up with jumbotrons for easy viewing.

Audio and video commentary for the launch is available at both viewing locations, with expert commentary from a space expert at Atlantis North Lawn.

GOES-U is designed to provide advance detection and monitoring of environmental phenomena.

Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES) is a collaborative NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) and NASA program.

It will provide continuous footage and data on atmospheric conditions and solar activity.

Kennedy Under the Stars

Later this summer, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex Kennedy will hold a special after-hours event, Kennedy Under the Stars.

Taking place August 31 from 6:30 p.m., Kennedy Under the Stars is an exclusive event combining the park’s favorite attractions with a space themed glow party.

Tickets are $65 for all ages and can be purchased online.

Key attractions at the main visitor complex will stay open late, offering lower wait times and more time to explore.

Guests can also get up close to real flight-flown artifacts like Space Shuttle Atlantis.

Throughout the evening, the colors of the cosmos will be brought to life through a series of illuminated experiences.

These comprise an 80s to 90s Video DJ in the Rocket Garden, a Techno DJ dance party in NASA Center, Cosmic Glow Mini Golf under the Saturn 1B Rocket and more.

Guests will also have the chance to meet with veteran astronauts Nicole Scott and Scott Parazynski who will mingle among the crowds throughout the evening.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase throughout the night.
