Rocket Power!

Sometime in the next month, NASA is going to be launching rockets off from a site in Virginia. The rockets are being launched for experimental reasons to gather information about a high-altitude jet stream. There is going to be five rockets launched off over a five minute span, and the most awesome part about it is that the rockets will be visible from VA!

The date and time is still TBA but it’s going to happen sometime between March 14th and April 3rd. Here is an article about the launch, explaining some of the details and what you could possibly see. If you want to make sure you don’t miss it, follow NASA Wallops on Twitter as they will be posting when the time is near.

If you want a quick visual of where the rockets will be visible, here is the picture off of the NASA webpage!
