View toward Complex 9 launch pad Zoom

Though it looks like a terrarium, we are really looking straight through a window into a fully intact angled mirror. We see another set of mirrors reflected in this one - these are set atop the blockhouse at an angle parallel to the mirror we are looking at. Together, these two sets of mirrors provide a view of the Complex 9 launch pad.

The view we're getting is somewhat degraded by the fact that the glass and mirrors haven't been maintained for decades, not to mention the variety of plant life growing in the channel that houses the mirrors.
