So sad We intentionally planned our trip for the 22nd so we could see a rocket launch before our cruise on the 23rd. We got our tickets for the KSC for that day! I even looked yesterday and they had added the launch on the 20th but still had the 22nd on the schedule just did not have a time Now on NASA's site there are no American launches on the schedule maybe they will put the launch on the 22nd back on the schedule!

That website is notorious for not getting updated quickly... use this one instead: http://spaceflightnow.com/tracking/index.html

That website updates ASAP after changes are made. The launch originally scheduled on the 22nd was SpaceX and there's no chance it will be moved back to the 22nd, sorry The "new" launch on the night of the 20th with an airforce payload actually had its launch window extended since SpaceX told the Eastern Range they weren't going to launch on the 22nd. If I count correctly, this is the 7th time SpaceX has delayed this particular launch... (Delayed from April 6, Sept. 30, Nov. 11, Dec. 9, Jan. 15, Feb. 11 and Feb. 22.)

Not sure when you arrive into the PC area, but if you are here the night of the 20th you will have an excellent view from anywhere near the Port. The beach at jetty park is a good viewing spot. Others also pull off the road along SR 528 as well as the road that goes to the DCL terminal. Just please be careful if you do this, the traffic gets heavy sometimes and I've seen kids a little too close to the road for my comfort as I drove by.

We don't drive in until the 22nd. We are stopping in Jacksonville on the 21st. Hoping for a early launch on March 1st we are leaving that day!

Thanks! Very useful information. I can still make it for the 20th Feb launch, just not onboard the ship though.
