Spectator FAQ

Spectators, including prospective team members, BYU faculty, friends, and family, are welcome to attend launches.

Spectators are expected to follow all UROC range safety rules. While team members are preparing their rocket projects prior to launch, they will use organization tables and work surfaces. Spectators should stay clear of these areas to allow BYU Rocketry students adequate space to work.

More information about launch safety can be found on UROC’s website.

For all launches, bring sunscreen, water, a hat, and closed-toe shoes. Launches during the Fall Semester in October or November can be very cold, so a jacket is recommended.
