SpaceX Launch Scrubbed – Next Attempt on Friday

SpaceX Rocket Launch Tonight!

If everything goes well, SpaceX will launch a rocket from Kennedy Space Center at 4:58pm this afternoon. If we get lucky with the clouds, you should be able to see it by looking North, and following it to the NorthEast.

You can follow the launch on your computer or phone by going to:

I usually watch on my phone so I know if there has been a delay or postponement and am not standing outside looking for a rocket that is not flying!
