The Antares rocket will launch from NASA Wallops Island at 7:37 AM Saturday to bring supplies to the International Space Station. The weather will be clear and cold across the entire NE U.S. and the launch should be visible all the way into New England. The low sun angle should light up the vapor trail of the rocket as it climbs into orbit and it will be a beautiful sight! The launch may be visible from Cape Cod to the South Carolina beaches.

WBOC-TV will carry the launch live during our Saturday morning newscast.
