If it's clear the east coast should be able to see it.

A Minotaur I rocket carrying the DOD's Operationally Responsive Space-3 mission is set to launch Nov. 19 from Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport Pad 0B here. The window for launch is 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. EST.

Gives a new meaning to "flock shooting". :beer:

I didn't mention the Mars mission launch out of KSC yesterday. That went well.

BTW: The mission to the Moon launched from Wallops a few weeks ago is doing very well in lunar orbit.
