Damn, that's a big ol' rocket! It's a Saturn V Rocket at the Johnson Space Center. Glen Vigus said:

The Saturn V rockets were used to launch the Apollo missions to the moon from 1968 to 1972. The Saturn V in this image was intended for the Apollo 18 mission before funding for the program was cut.

The photo is before summer '04, when a large metal structure was built over it while the rocket was restored (mildew, rust, dirt cleaned off, etc). I believe the rocket will be covered from now on...
