The US Military OROS-3 mission is set to launch tonight from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia between 7:30 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. EST. The Minotaur 1 rocket will be carrying a record 29 satellites into orbit.

The launch will be visible along the entire east coast from Maine to Florida and as far inland as Michigan, Indiana and Kentucky. There will be clear skies here in Philadelphia this evening making it ideal viewing weather to catch a glimpse of the rocket launch hundred of miles away. (See Visibility Maps)

It will appear in the south eastern skies :30-:60 after launch and rise to 25 degrees above the horizon. The rocket will appear as a moving orange star with a small tail.

UPDATE for 7:55 pm EST (0000 GMT): NASA and Orbital Sciences are currently targeting an 8:15 pm ET launch for tonight's Minotaur 1 rocket launch after solving a glitch with a ground-based tracking station transmitter that has since been resolved. The launch window tonight runs through 9:15 p.m. EST (0215 GMT).


You can follow the launch on live video here:
