One and the same MrBlue. It's at the Alabama Welcome Center on I-65 just across from Tennessee and only a few miles from my house! It's a Saturn 1-B rocket used for a mockup to get some of the facilities to fit the real thing when made and tested at Redsone arsenal!

Well, I can't top Redstone Arsenal-

But this is really my back yard. Just step out on to the deck and its there. Complete with heavy backlighting between 11am and 1pm.

If you live that close to it then you'll need to keep the anchor out so you don't float off one stormy night!! LOL

Dawg, didn't know that you you lived so close to that. We went by there late Friday night on our way to Mississippi. Might have to meet you for some coffee the next time were down that way.

I can occasionally see rockets going up from Canaveral over the water, but I've never anticipated enough to get a picture.

My back yard from the computer room:


This guy forgot to stay inside the intercoastal markers on a rainy day.


Osprey like to pluck the fish from the water without getting wet. Occasionally they dive for fish and like to dry their feathers before going home.


The seawall in the evening:


We get much larger boats passing by, but most don't put their sails up and just motor past.
