Rocket launch should be visible from Northern Virginia on Saturday

Rocket launch should be visible from Northern Virginia on Saturday

The next launch attempt is set for Sunday, Nov. 12 at 7:14 a.m. EST.

To see the rocket from the Lehigh Valley, you'll need a clear view of the horizon to the south. It will appear as a bright dot moving across the sky between two and two-and-a-half minutes after launch.

The launch of the Antares rocket, carrying private contractor Orbital ATK's Cygnus cargo space capsule on Saturday, was rescheduled for Sunday from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility on the Atlantic coast of Virginia.

There is a catch for anyone who heads outside to witness it: Saturday morning will be frigid, possibly coming off a record low temperature for the date.

The next launch effort is set for 7:14 a.m. Sunday.

This picture from Friday morning shows the rocket's size, which is the biggest the NASA facility on the Eastern Shore of Virginia sends up.

Orbital ATK tweeted: "We were working no issues until an aircraft flew into restricted airspace". It is scheduled to arrive at ISS on Tuesday.

Among the thousands of pounds of supplies are several science experiments, including an experiment designed to measure antibiotic resistance in microgravity.

"Scientists believe that the results of this experiment could help design effective countermeasures to protect astronauts' health during long-duration human space missions".

NASA will livestream mission coverage starting at 1:15 a.m. and launch coverage at 7 a.m. One of the box-shaped satellites will test a laser-based communications systems designed for small spacecrafts.
