Wallops Launch are you gonna see?

So maybe in NY we might get a glimpse of the Orbital Sciences Antares rocket launch. Somewhere between 5 and 5:30 pm depending on weather.

I am using Stellarium to look at scorpious in the sky for now to kinda get an idea as to where to look OUR NY sky. . . anyone know? or have the ability to put up a diagram where to look from queens? LOL

I am using Stellarium is a free open source planetarium for your computer. It shows a realistic sky in 3D, just like what you see with the naked eye, binoculars or a telescope.

Very strange to think that they are going to use Wallops. I've stopped by there at their little museum the few times I've been down Chincoteague way and a more laid-back little niche of NASA would be hard to find - at least from the POV of what's visible from the roads.

They actually never really stopped using it. I think most launches over the past 7 years were navy or small military off the radar projects. Now that they received major funding and tax incentives, not to mention a little boost of moral for the state they are receiving larger projects. ---- ITS CRAZY but great work by the politicians in that state.

Here is the Phone number for launch schedules - The next one is June 4th I believe (757) 824-2050 -- automated
