Awesome Name for a Road

I know that it is not a picture of the sky, but I think it is awesome that there is a street in Cocoa Beach called Astronaut Boulevard. From just a few kilometers from where this photo was taken a rocket launched today. The Atlas V carrying the MUOS-1 military communications satellite launched today at 5:15 EST. This is pretty cool to me for many reasons, one of them being the fact that I have seen that very rocket out on the launch pad. It was due to launch the day after I visited the Space Center, but that day and the next the launches were scrubbed for weather. After rolling out to the pad again yesterday, it was successfully launched today.
