NASA Rocket Launch Set For Tonight, Will Be Visible In New Jersey

A rocket launch scheduled for this evening from their facility in Virginia, will be able to be seen by people in New Jersey tonight, NASA says.

The 59-foot-tall Electron rocket will lift off from Launch Complex 2 at Virginia Space’s Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport on Wallops Island.

The launch window for the mission is 6-8pm, depending on weather conditions.

According to NASA, the rocket “will appear like a bright, fast-moving star in the sky,” and it should be visible from New Jersey when it shoots into the atmosphere as long as clouds don’t block the views.

The mission will deploy radio frequency monitoring satellites for HawkEye 360,  a geospatial analytics provider.

A live launch webcast will be available at beginning about 40 minutes before launch.
