The planned launch of NASA military satellite tonight (Wednesday) may create a spectacular sight for skywatchers in New Jersey, according to NASA. The launch is now expected to go at 10:05 p.m.
U.S. Air Force's Minotaur 1 rocket was scheduled to blast off Tuesday night from a Virginia spaceport, but bad weather pushed the launch back to Wednesday between 8:28 p.m. and 11:28 p.m.
A NASA map shows where the launch might be visible.
Such launches are very rare in the East, reports Space.com.
