Hey Space Placers!
NASA and Orbital Sciences Corporation are counting down to the scheduled launch today at 1:07 pm EST from NASA's Wallops Island Flight Facility of the Antares-Cygnus resupply mission to the ISS. The launch had been scrubbed from yesterday as a precaution due to the solar radiation storm caused by sunspot AR1944 - see my blog for yesterday for details on AR1944.
Although not as spectacular as a night launch, viewers in the DMV will be able to see the launch in certain areas:
We might be able to see Cygnus in orbit as it catches up to the ISS but viewing details will have to wait until launch and orbit.
