Orbital Sunset

More photos from yesterday at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

These were taken near sunset at Launch Complex 14, where the four Mercury orbital flights launched.

The monuments at the entrance to Launch Complex 14.

The Mercury 7 astronauts memorial. The plaque has the formula for orbital velocity and covers a time capsule to be opened in 2464.

The LC-14 security gate. Note the names on the parking spots.

Want to enter the blockhouse? Here are the rules.

The blast door and blockhouse entrance. (It was locked.)

All that remains of the launch pad. The Atlantic Ocean is on the other side.
