The custom space- and holiday-themed projection mapping show set against the side of a Saturn 1B rocket enthralled the crowd as they viewed from a one-of-a-kind outdoor cinematic setting amid the visitor complex’s Rocket Garden. The show also featured historic footage of actual launches, awe-inspiring views of earth and a breathtaking pyrotechnics display.

“Each year our Holidays in Space program features more surprise elements and enhancements in that we are sharing the incredible NASA story in a way that is not only exciting but also memorable,” said Therrin Protze, chief operating officer, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. “This year’s show goes well beyond what guests have experienced in past years and is truly unforgettable.”

The dazzling projection display will run nightly through January 1, 2017, with the exception of Dec. 25.

In addition to the nightly show, the visitor complex also is adorned for the holidays with a stunning array of decorations, including a 35-foot-tall holiday mosaic tree, illuminated shooting stars and the NASA insignia “dressed up” for the season.
