USA Rocket Yard Art

Went to look for the rocket, and it wasn't there.

Your photo shows that a new house is being built on the former vacant lot. The rocket must have been blasted off when the property was sold.


USA Rocket Yard Art

Easily accessible and awesome! In a rural farm area. Park on the side of the road, or there's a marked entrance for the property.

Yard rocket.

USA Rocket Yard Art

I was riding around the country roads of Lafayette/Scott/Carencro area and saw this rocket on the side of the road, in someone's yard, so I took a few pictures. This is apparently a shell of a USA rocket that someone erected as some sort of yard art.
