The Orbital ATK Antarres is set to launch on October 9th at 10:47 PM from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.  This will be the perfect time of night to see a rocket, especially this time of year.  Only issue may be the spin off from hurricane Mathew or the full onslaught of one.  Otherwise we will have a great view from the beaches in Delaware,  Even inland you will have a good view of the launch. The Cygnus spacecraft will carry cargo, supplies and experiments to the International Space Station.  If the weather is a no go, there are back up dates for the 10th to the 13th.  Hurricane Mathew could become an issue for the launch.  That is too early to call right now.
