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, mission patch and lapel pin following the tradition of creating a unique identity for each launch dating to the earliest days of the American space program. Eric R. Gignac is the Celestis Aurora Flight mission logo designer.
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 inches. Iron-on backing.
Note: The framed Aurora Flight mission patch displays a representative launch photo.
