Nike Zeus Launch Area (West end)

      In this photo of the Zeus Launch area, you see two earthen berms at the left and right, with the one on the right having "ZEUS" on it. To the left of the "ZEUS" berm, you will see one of the two rail launchers protruding from its pit. There was another launcher pit, not shown, just off the photo on the left. The area to the right of this photo is shown in the next photo of this series.

     After the Zeus program ended, these berms remained and the launcher pits were covered with heavy steel plating. In 1999, the berms were removed, and the pits filled (presumably) and now has a building and parking lot in their place.
