NASA rocket to launch from Wallops space facility, may be seen in many eastern states appeared on by Len Melisurgo | NJ Advance Media for

The green comet isn’t the only object that will be streaking across the night sky this month. A rocket is scheduled to blast off from the NASA Wallops Flight Facility in eastern Virginia Tuesday night, Jan. 24, as long as the weather conditions are good.

UPDATE: The launch had been scheduled for Monday night, but was pushed back a day on Sunday due to rain and strong winds.

Officials from the NASA space agency say the 59-foot-tall Rocket Lab Electron rocket “will appear like a bright, fast-moving star in the sky,” and it should be visible from New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and other eastern states when it shoots into the atmosphere as long as clouds don’t block the views.

The rocket is scheduled to lift off between 6 and 8 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, and it will be the Rocket Lab aerospace company’s first launch from the Wallops facility, NASA said in a Facebook post that announced the launch date.

“The mission, named ‘Virginia is for Launch Lovers,’ will deploy radio frequency monitoring satellites for HawkEye 360,” NASA said in a news release.

People in many eastern states may be able to see a rocket that is scheduled to be launched by NASA on Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2023. The map above shows how many seconds after liftoff the rocket should be visible from different regions, assuming skies are clear.NASA

Among the best viewing locations are on “Chincoteague Island, including Robert Reed Park on Main Street or Beach Road spanning the area between Chincoteague and Assateague Islands,” NASA noted. “The Virginia, Maryland and Delaware Atlantic beaches also provide good viewing locations.”

NASA’s Wallops Visitor Center will be open to the public for the January launch. The center is scheduled to open at 4 p.m. on the day of the launch.

For people too far away or blocked by clouds, a live webcast of the rocket launch will be available at starting about 40 minutes before liftoff.
