One of the unique delights of the Washington Nationals spring training on the Space Coast is the chance to watch rocket launches. I’ve seen a few during my time covering spring training down there, including a night time Shuttle launch last year.

The Space Shuttle Discovery was scheduled to be launched on Sunday, Feb. 22, but now the launch has been pushed back to Feb. 27. A Delta II Rocket is scheduled to be launched from Cape Canaveral on March 5 at 10:48 p.m.
