Unknown boat isn't responding and will not comply with a turn around request. (To keep clear of the areas of ocean). I'd arrest him.


Weather isn't good now, so they scrubbed the launch tonight...

Now it's scheduled for Tuesday March 27th. Between midnight and 3 am EDT:


MIDNIGHT ROCKET PLUMES: On Tuesday, March 27th, between midnight and 3 am EDT, NASA plans a rapid-fire launch of five sounding rockets from the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The rockets will deliver a chemical tracer to the upper reaches of Earth's atmosphere, forming milky white plumes that reveal high-speed winds at the edge of space. The display should be visible to the naked eye from coastal areas between South Carolina and New Jersey.
