Tuesday, 5 March 2013

Rocket Launch Scheduled March 11 from Wallops 
WALLOPS ISLAND, VA – A Terrier-Lynx suborbital rocket is scheduled between 1 and 1:45 a.m. EST March 8 for the Department of Defense from NASA’s launch range at the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.  This date has been slipped because of the bad weather the last few days at the launch site..so looks like Monday is the night

The backup launch days are March 11 and 15 between 12:15 and 2:15 a.m. EDT. The rocket may be visible to residents in the mid-Atlantic region.

The launch will not be shown live on the Internet nor will launch status updates be provided on social media once the countdown begins. The NASA Visitor Center at Wallops will not be open for viewing the launch.

The visibility map for the launch on March 8 is below.
