NASA will try again to launch a Terrier-Lynx suborbital rocket from Wallops Island tonight. It was originally scheduled to launch Friday, but was delayed. 

The launch from NASA’s launch range at the Wallops Flight Facility on the Eastern Shore will not be shown live on the internet, but it may be visible to the eye for some residents in the mid-Atlantic area of the country. 

Launch updates and a map showing the area in which the rocket may be visible can be found on NASA’s website at
