The colourful clouds could linger for 20 minutes depending on atmospheric conditions The colourful clouds could linger for 20 minutes depending on atmospheric conditions

Four previous launch attempts had to be scrubbed for different reasons.

The launch at Wallops Flight Facility on the Eastern Shore was postponed Sunday night because of boats in the launch range hazard area.

A combination of artificial clouds created by released vapor tracers.


NASA will create artificial clouds tonight as part of its studies about ionosphere. The clouds, which form thanks to the interaction between the chemicals barium, cupric-oxide, and strontium, will be extremely eye-catching, ranging from bluish green to red in color.

The ampoule doors on the sounding rocket payload are open during testing at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. It's the fifth attempt NASA has made to launch this particular mission.

According to Weather.com, the artificial clouds-delivered 100 miles up via a rocket launch at Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia-should be visible from NY to North Carolina. A map from NASA shows the zone in which the clouds will likely be visible and how long after launch the clouds will appear. Keith Koehler, a spokesman for NASA, said weather forecasts so far indicate good weather conditions for the launch, and NASA's sending alerts to fishermen and others in the area to make sure they're away from the launch site. This was scheduled in a manner that it could be viewed by the people living on the US East Coast from NY to North Carolina on a real time basis but only if the weather was favourable. Check back around 8:30PM ET to watch NASA's coverage of the launch live. Tonight's main payload tips the scales at almost 700 pounds, but NASA scientists are also using a canister ejection system to toss ten canisters about 6 to 12 miles away from the main payload. The contents will be release anywhere from 96 to 124 miles high. A sounding rocket only has enough power to last 10 minutes in space, but the data gathered here is still vital. No worries - NASA has you covered with a livestream beginning at 3:35 a.m., and continuous updates on the Wallops Facebook and Twitter sites.
