If you were up early Tuesday morning you might have seen three sub-orbital rockets launch from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility.

The three Terrier-Oriole suborbital rockets launched within a one-minute period for the Department of Defense.

At the request of Defense Dept. project managers, no real-time launch status updates were available, and the NASA Visitor Center was not opened.
