Like spirits hovering in the heavens above in the pre-dawn sky, the beautiful, shimmering, lights of the aurora beckon Celestis participants to join them in space. Launch of the Celestis Aurora Flight occurs at Spaceport America, New Mexico once the sun, which powers the aurora, rises in the east under the watchful eye of the nearby Sunspot Solar Observatory.
Every Celestis mission has its own logo and mission patch, following the tradition of creating a unique identity for each launch dating to the earliest days of the American space program.
This is a woven patch with clean, crisp, details. A woven patch allows a high resolution graphic and superior quality compared to an an emrboidered patch. Size: 3.5 x 3.75 inch. Iron-on backing.
