Jetty park offers a unique view. Located right at the beach, you see the arc transversely as it goes towards orbit. If you are directly west, it appears flat since the flight path arcs away from you. The other bonus is the sound travels better on the beach view since them ocean helps by reflecting it rather than attenuating it.Thx for the suggestion. If a guy wants to get as close as possible do you know if there are any side roads that one can take? Looking at the launch sites it looks like the Atlas V takes off from near the top of the Banana River area?
If you want to watch north of Titusville, try the causeway heading towards Playalinda Beach. Never saw a launch there but it offers similar views.
