Rocket Launches and the Space Center

Check out the rocket launches from The Villages or goto the space center.

Did you know you can see, on a clear day, the rocket launches from east coast?  From here you will look south-east.


The Kennedy Space center is a great day trip if you have family or friends in town.  It’s about 1.5 hours South East from The Villages.  Tons of history and rockets to look at.  You can even take a tour to the launchpads.

Below are the oncoming dates from


  • SoaceX Falcon 9 Telstar19 – July 2018 (exact date still to be announced)
  • ULA Delta IV Heavy Parker Solar Probe – August 4th
  • SpaceX Heavy Falcom Heavy – October 2018 (exact date still to be announced)

If you want a closer view you can always drive to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.  You can buy tickets for close viewing.
