WALLOPS ISLAND, Va. (AP) - Rainy weather has postponed the launch of three suborbital rockets from NASA's Wallops Island facility on Virginia's Eastern Shore.
The Terrier-Orion rockets were scheduled to be launched for the Department of Defense on Tuesday morning. NASA says the launch has been rescheduled for Wednesday between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. because of approaching rain.
Backup launch days are Thursday through Saturday.
NASA says the rockets will be launched within a 20-second period and may be visible to residents in southern New Jersey and on the Delmarva Peninsula.
The NASA Visitor Center at Wallops won't be open for viewing the launch. The Defense Department also has requested that NASA not provide real-time launch updates.
