The largest rockets launched from Wallops Island, the Antares, can be seen from the Carolinas to New England. The sounding rockets have a smaller viewing circumference. It doesn’t matter what kind of rocket is being launched. When you visit Wallops Island, you’ll get the complete launch experience. You’ll hear the roar of the engine, and the cheering of the crowd as the rocket rises above the earth. You’ll see the smoke and flames left behind. But best of all, you’ll be surrounded by people who love rocket launches as much as you do. All you have to do is head to the Delmarva peninsula to get the best view. Here are our some of our favorite viewing locations, some are “official” and some are just great places to go.
