Your thread title says the launch time is 11:57 PM, but the link you provided says the launch window opens at 11:27 PM (with the window lasting 4 minutes).
LADEE TO THE MOON! As seen from the Top of the Rock, Rockefeller Center, about 200 miles north of the launch pad, the first Orbital Sciences Minotaur V rocket sends NASA's LADEE spacecraft on its way to the moon! The Empire State Building is lit up green and blue in honor of the US Open of tennis, being played in Flushing, Queens this week.
I am for one pumped! It will reach the moon Oct, 6. Weird that a normal apollo would reach it in 3 days, this will take a whole month.
