Watch Live Tonight! NASA Rocket Launch to Spawn Artificial Clouds @ 9:04 pm ET

Hat tips, WTOP, for tipping me off this morning, and Judi Lynn, for reminding me with a thread elsewhere: Watch Live Tonight! NASA Rocket Launch to Spawn Artificial Clouds @ 9:04 pm ET

Watch Live Tonight! NASA Rocket Launch to Create Glowing Clouds @ 9:04 pm ET
By SPACE.com Staff | June 13, 2017 07:00am ET

Update for June 13, 7 a.m. ET: Launch Tonight

NASA will try again to launch a Terrier-Improved Malemute sounding rocket tonight, June 13, at 9:04 p.m. EDT (0104 GMT) after a series of delays due to cloudy weather and stray boats offshore. NASA's webcast begins at 8:30 p.m. EDT (0030 GMT). The launch may also be visible to observers along the U.S. East Coast from New York to North Carolina, and as far inland as Charlottesville, Virginia, NASA officials have said. You can also watch the liftoff, which will take place from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, at the Wallops Ustream site: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/nasa-tv-wallops.
....

If you live near the Wallops Island area in Virginia and would like to watch the sounding rocket launch in person, NASA's Wallops Flight Facility Visitors Center will open to the public at 8 p.m. EDT. Because the launch is weather dependent, local spectactors and online viewers can recieve the latest updates from NASA via the Wallops center Facebook and Twitter sites.
