SpaceX is scheduled to launch a Falcon 9 rocket from Kennedy Space Center January 7 with the launch window opening at 8 p.m.
The Falcon 9 rocket’s reusable first stage will attempt a controlled landing at Landing Zone 1 (LZ1) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex offers the closest public viewing of launches with the purchase of a launch viewing/transportation ticket. Availability of viewing opportunities and locations is dependent upon the scheduled launch time and is subject to NASA and U.S. Air Force approval.
Due to scheduled launch window of 8 - 10 pm, launch viewing is not available at Kennedy Space Center for this mission. However, we hope that you will visit us before the launch as the visitor complex is open 9 am to 6 pm. Check back to the event calendar for future launch viewing opportunities.
