BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. — Tens of thousands of visitors will head to Florida’s Space Coast on Monday for the launch of Artemis I.
The uncrewed mission around the moon will set the stage for NASA’s next lunar landing with astronauts.
Florida’s Space Coast of Tourism said visitors should expect traffic delays and lane closures surrounding the historic launch.
However, there are plenty of locations in Titusville, Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach to view the launch.
Port Canaveral’s Jetty Park will open at 5 a.m. until it reaches capacity on launch day.
“Places like Jetty Park, which are great viewing spots, those are going to fill up and close very quickly,” said Peter Cranis, executive director of the Space Office of Tourism. “So you know, our recommendation is to look at Cocoa Beach, kind of down the beach.”
Monday’s two-hour launch window opens at 8:33 a.m.
Channel will have live coverage of the launch on Eyewitness News.
