Complex 9/10 blockhouse
Complex 9/10 blockhouse Zoom

This is the Complex 9/10 blockhouse. The Complex 9 launch pad is behind us (to the southwest), and what used to be Complex 10 is to the east. At the front of the blockhouse are angled mirrors used to observe launches from Complex 9. As you can see, there are plants growing in the channel that the mirrors reflect down into. The plant growth to the right of the mirrors (in front of the arched portion of the building) is in the mirror channel that was used to observe Complex 10.
