3, 2, 1 ... liftoff! If you're in Brevard (aka the Space Coast), and there's a shuttle launch, where's the best place to see it? The beach? State Road 528? Metromix Brevard has you covered. Check out our photo gallery of shuttle launch hot spots.
In this photo, shuttle Discovery lights up the sky over Cape Canaveral on July Fourth as it lifts off from launch pad 39B at the Kennedy Space Center.
