Once again, the Space Coast will be the place to be on Monday afternoon, November 1st, as Space Shuttle Discovery, and its 6 person crew, blasts off from Launch Pad 39A at Kennedy Space Center, on an 11 day mission to the International Space Station. STS-133 is the next to last scheduled shuttle launch, signaling an end of an era for America and the Space Coast. If at all possible, you should make your way to Brevard County for a look at history in the making. Along the river in Titusville is a prime viewing area, but my suggestion would be to get to the beach early on Monday afternoon, stake out a spot at Jetty Park or the Cocoa Beach Pier, enjoy the beach, and prepare yourself for the awesome liftoff at around 4:40 pm!!
Update: Launch has been pushed back to Wednesday, Nov. 3rd at 3:52 pm.
Latest Update: Launch pushed back to at least Nov. 30th.
