    Default NASA rocket launch

    I'll be curious to see if anybody overnighting caught the launch of NASA's rocket tonight. it launched from Eastern Shore of VA at 11:27pm and the guys offshore would have had a great view.

    It's not common knowledge, the facility is called Wallops Island, old military airbase. You'll be hearing alot more about them because they seem to be launching more and bigger rockets. We went to Cape May and watched.

    Saw it really well in dc. Folks In the more southerly canyonslast night I bet would have seen it even better since that's roughly due east of here and not nearly as smoggy

    Saw it last night while overniting in the washington. Really cool. Went almost over our heads!

    We also had a visual of the NASA surveillance (I think) ship outside of the South Poormans. Massive vessel that lit up my radar and we could see his deck lights from the east notch of the washington

    There is no replacement for displacement.

    WE totally saw that, it was amazing. I'm looking up and we see this trail of smoke with a super bright light. We thought it might be a meteor but then again they don't leave trails of smoke like that. I was starting to wonder if it was my imagination. Thanks for the explanation.

    I saw it from Philly shooting out E-NE about 2328-2329. I think I saw the rocket booster release also because the light went out then caught fire again. Anybody from the Washington Canyon up to the Block would have had an awesome view. Guys out on the Washington would have had an awesome view. Wallops Island has been getting really busy ever since the shuttle's cutback.
