Tomorrow at 6pm it should be able to be seen here if the clouds clear out. I'll be watching

This link should go active before the launch. Thanks for the heads up.

Due to unfavorable weather conditions in the Wallops area on Monday, Jan. 23, @RocketLab 's first Electron launch from Wallops has moved to Tuesday, Jan. 24. Weather for Tuesday is 90% favorable for the 6-8 p.m. EST launch window.

The cloud cover looks better on Tuesday at 6pm than today in the forecast.

That was pretty cool. I didn’t get any good images though. It just looked like a bright orange light moving through the sky.

We saw it here in Baltimore but like Hop said it was just an orange light. It's pretty cool that we can watch it !!

We saw it too. We're too far back from the coast to see it while it's still burning the first stage.


RE: A rocket launch scheduled for 1/23




Does the rocket have stages? I watched the orange-red light ascend a few minutes, the the light went out and I heard a bang just a bit later. Figured it was the first stage dropping off and the second one igniting. But that ended the show for me.


RE: A rocket launch scheduled for 1/23




It did have stages. You could see the glow of the rocket at first and then it went out. Then a minute or so later you could see the trail. From Avon.




RE: A rocket launch scheduled for 1/23




Really cool. My new phone still doesn't do the photos justice. It was a much brighter orange.




RE: A rocket launch scheduled for 1/23




It started out as a red dot going pretty fast, then the 1st stage ended and it seemed like 2 min until the 2nd stage fired and I watched it for over 5 min like this picture.




RE: A rocket launch scheduled for 1/23




Couldn’t see the first stage from down here. Pretty cool though! Several folks out on the beach watching it.
