NASA is going to launch 5 ATREX rockets from the Wallops launch facility in Virginia on Mar. 26th which will release tracer clouds that will be visible over a large portion of the east coast. For anyone in Accomac county VA, this should make for some fun scanning!! I'll be watching the skies though. For those not within the visible range, there should be a live video feed of the launch somewhere on the provided page. Is anyone going to try to see it?
NASA - Anomalous Transport Rocket Experiment (ATREX)

This is what it is supposed to look like:

They've been trying to do this launch for over a week. It keeps getting pushed back due to weather. Yes, the next scheduled attempt is between midnight and 3am Sunday the 25th.
