Jetty Park Will Be Closed To Spectators During NASA Artemis I Mission Space Flight To The Moon

Approximately 100,000 people are expected to travel to Florida’s Space Coast to see the historic Artemis 1 Launch to the moon, but members of the public are being warned that one of the most popular viewing locations will be closed to see the world's most powerful rocket launch towards the moon.

Port Canaveral has revealed that Jetty Park and Campground remains closed and will not be available for viewing of the Artemis 1 launch, scheduled for Wednesday November 16, due to ongoing cleanup from Hurricane Nicole.

Artemis I is scheduled to launch early Wednesday, November 16, from Launch Complex 39B.

The two-hour launch window opens at 1:04 a.m.

Kennedy Space Center Visitors Complex which is the closest location to watch the launch, is opening especially for the occasion at 8 pm, but is completely sold out, so where is best to view the launch in person?

The 8.8 million pounds of thrust produced by NASA's Space Launch System rocket will be heard and felt for miles in Central Florida, but to see the launch up close and personal in Cape Canaveral here is your best options:

The Director of Florida’s Space Coast Office of Tourism, Peter Cranis, said planning ahead is the best way to enjoy the Artemis 1 launch in person.

Plan to arrive hours early to your launch-viewing spot and bring plenty of water, sunscreen and food.

Parking will be tight in many of the most popular viewing locations, including Space View Park in Titusville, and along the beaches in Brevard County.

"All the beaches that are north of Patrick Space Force Base are all great viewing locations," Cranis said.

Along the Indian River in Titusville, which runs parallel to Kennedy Space Center, is also a good option for launch viewing.
