Note that this private-company, viz. Orbital Sciences, Antares rocket launch from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility on the Eastern Shore of Virginia scheduled for Monday night, i.e., October 27, 2014, had to be postponed.

A stray sailboat was in the ‘no traffic’ zone in the waters below the launch! NASA could NOT get it moved out of the way in time even though helicopters were dispatched to shout at the errant crew. Only in America.

So the launch will now be on Tuesday night, October 28, 2014. Most of New Hampshire is too far north, as can be seen from the above map, to be able to see the rocket UNLESS, of course, something goes wrong and it strays off-course!
