Watch a Launch From Your Own Backyard

On Sunday, Oct. 16, we’re launching cargo to the International Space Station, and if you live on the east coast, there’s a chance you can catch a glimpse! 


The above map shows the areas on the east coast where launch may be visible, depending on cloud conditions.

Liftoff is currently scheduled for 8:03 p.m. EDT from our Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. 

The launch of Orbital ATK’s Cygnus spacecraft will carry around 5,100 pounds of supplies and research materials to the crew on the space station. 

Not in the launch viewing area? No worries! Full launch coverage will be available starting at 7:00 p.m. EDT HERE
