"We Have Liftoff"
Experience the thrill of the Space Coast. Rockets carrying spacecraft lift off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, northeast of Port Canaveral. The Port is the best viewing site for launches. Every U.S. manned space mission and hundreds of scientific spacecraft have launched from the heart of Florida’s famous Space Coast.
The Saturn V rocket launched astronauts to the moon from LC-39A. It was built in the enormous Vehicle Assembly Building, clearly visible on the horizon.
