I was invited to observe the Artemis 1 launch because I made the astronaut Snoopy a Zero-Gravity Indicator riding in Artemis 1. It was a super exciting experience because the invitation was from NASA!
The launch was at Kennedy Space Center in Cocoa, Florida. We arrived at Kennedy Space Center around 10 pm on November 15th. The launch happened at 1:47 am on November 16th!
The amazing thing was the moon was covered by a veil of clouds until a few minutes before the launch, but suddenly, the view of the moon got so clear when the launch happened. it was crazy to see the bright light and feel the shake of ground from the explosion. Also, it was thrilling to think the Snoopy that I made is in the rocket, heading to the moon! He will return to earth on Sunday, December 11, 2022. I can’t wait to see him again.
