Newest ISS Resupply Mission

Hey Space Placers!

Greeting from the Atlantic Ocean.

Getting settled in on Sea Dream I and hoping for clear skies tonight for our onboard guests as we attempt to hole our 1st "At Sea Under The Stars" session.

If you are on the US East Coast you might be able to see the newest resupply mission to the International Space Station (ISS) launch from NASA'sWallops Island Flight Facility, located on the Eastern Shore of VA.

As of a few minutes ago all systems are "GO" for launch at 6:45 p.m. EDT

This will be the first nighttime launch of the Antares Rocket so you need to check this visibility map and this info from Orbital to see if you can se the ascent of the rocket from your location in DC, VA, MD, and the US East Coast.
A rocket launch at night is a sight to see as I saw a space shuttle and the LADEE mission do so and it was impressive.

Hope to have some at sea pics soon…
