Launch Day Today

Rocket Scientists are reporting that today, starting at 4:53 pm est, Orbital Sciences and NASA will launch the third Cygnus resupply mission to the ISS.

What’s even better:  they’re reporting that the launch may be visible to star gazers up and down the east coast.

The further north or south you are from the Cape, the lower on the horizon the launch will appear to be, so step outside, find a location that has a good view to the eastern horizon, point yourself east (and appropriately north or south) and look up.

More information, including links to NASA TV coverage of the event, can be found here.
