NASA Rocket Launch Scheduled March 15, 2012
03.12.12


WALLOPS ISLAND, VA – NASA is scheduled to launch five suborbital sounding rockets in just over five minutes March 15 from the Wallops Facility in Virginia as part of a study of the upper level jet stream.

Based on the approved range schedule, the launch window for March 15 is between midnight and 1:30 a.m. EDT. The backup launch days are March 16 through April 3.

The Anomalous Transport Rocket Experiment (ATREX) will gather information needed to better understand the process responsible for the high-altitude jet stream located 60 to 65 miles above the surface of the Earth.

As part the mission, the five rockets will release a chemical tracer that will form milky, white clouds that allow scientists and the public to “see” the winds in space. These clouds may be visible for up to 20 minutes by residents from South Carolina to southern New Hampshire and Vermont.

The NASA Visitor Center will open at 10 p.m. on March 14, 2012 for public viewing.
Launch status also is available on the Facility’s Facebook page and its launch status line at 757-824-2050.

The mission will be web cast beginning at 10 p.m. on March 14, 2012 at:
Wallops Flight Facility
Mission status on March 14 can be followed on Twitter at:
- NASA Wallops (@NASA_Wallops) on Twitter
More information on the ATREX mission is available on the Internet at:

I believe it was 3, maybe 4, years ago. Sara, my brother and a number of other folks were at Summit Point hanging in the cornerworker camping area during late dusk hours after races on a Saturday.

At the same time, my bro and I noticed a glow of light in the clouds out over the front straight/old apple orchard that looked like it was ascending into the atmosphere. Then as soon as it came, it was gone. He and I swore we saw something, but the rest of our comrades thought it was a good time to quit sipping on the Captain, as they thought we had had too much.

Turns out, it was a rocket that was launched from Wallops.

So yes, Wallops launches can be seen from NoVA.
