NASA will be launching a suborbital rocket tonight from it's Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Virginia. The launch is scheduled for 7 p.m. EDT with a two hour launch window to 9 pm. The rocket launch should be visible from many points across the U.S. East Coast including right here in the Philadelphia, NJ, and DE area.

NASA is testing a number of technologies including a Black Brant sounding rocket motor and ejection technologies for suborbital payloads. In addition to the launch itself, look out for the ejection of vapor consisting of a barium-strontium mixture when the rocket reaches over 100 miles high. This will produce a blue-green and red colored cloud that could linger for several minutes.

The best place to view the rocket launch in Philadelphia is anywhere with a clear view of the southeastern sky and horizon. The weather tonight is perfect for viewing with clear skies.

Watch live video of the rocket launch right here:
