Satish Dhawan Space Centre’s viewing area

Satish Dhawan Space Centre is closed two days before launch and 2 days after launch. To see the rocket launch from the space center, for a long time you needed to know someone who works at ISRO.

But since 2019, if you are an Indian citizen, you can ask for a pass to access the View Gallery by registering on this official website (this link works only 10 to 7 days before the launch). Once you have the pass for you and 5 people maximum, you have to print the authorizations and to bring them with you the launch day. Also, don’t forget to bring binoculars and a good camera to fully enjoy the experience !
