Maven Rocket Launch at Cape Canaveral

I added a "to do" list in this blog to keep me on track and for Monday's, I will be sharing photos about the NASA's Kennedy Space Center. A perfect timing for Nov 18, 2013 historic event in the Space Coast. The #MAVEN orbiter successfully launched at the Cape Canaveral SLC 41 at 1:28 PM. Hubby and I decided to watch it at Cape Canaveral area.

It was really cloudy but, NASA has a perfect window for the launch in fact, Maven was able to liftoff on time. It was really funny to note that Maven was playing hide and seek with us. The clouds hid it most of the time but the thundering noise was really loud.

Maven Mission to Mars will last for 10 months. It will probe Mars atmosphere to gain insights as to how the climate of the Red Planet changed over time. Scientists expect to unravel the mystery of why Mars lost its atmosphere.

As we drove down the Cape Canaveral area, both sides along the Banana River are full with people from all over. We drove towards Glen Cheek Drive and we parked at Milliken's Reef Restaurant.

I say that today is a nice day even though muggy and cloudy. The water along Banana River and Indian River are calm. I saw some manatees and dolphins swimming.

So far, the event today was all good. Here's a head's up, the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket liftoff is scheduled on November 25, 2013 at 5:37 PM EST. It is another historic event to witness!
