Tonight’s Virginia Moon Rocket Launch Should Be Visible From The Southcoast

NASA will be shooting things off into space again. No, not the space shuttle, something a little less spectacular but we will be able to see it off our coast tonight.

Facebook: NASA

According to CBS, NASA will be launching the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) atop a brand-new Mintaur V rocket from the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, and nearly 85 million people should be able to catch the great show! If you plan on being awake around 11:27 p.m., throw on a jacket and check it out.

Look toward the south-southeastern sky and enjoy. It will likely take 90 to 120 seconds before we can see the rocket streaking across the night sky.

UPDATE – 9/7 12:50pm

Check out the video below that NASA put up of the launch.
