There is also a a 4 day window. Besides weather conditions, the other big issue for launch delays is boats in the water. Listening to them on ustream when that happens can be comical at times.

We’re going to friends to watch - they live on the water directly across one of the inland bays from the launch pad. We watched the last night launch from their house. Really cool.

I got picked in the “lottery” for one of NASA’s social media “meet ups” and got to see components of the rocket and the actual launch pad where it will be going off.

Anyone that is on Face Book should “like” the Wallops Flight Facility - their pictures are awesome and they are wonderful about updates and chatter. They are also on Twitter, but I don’t use that and so am not familiar with how they work that, although they were doing that first and so have many more followers there than FB.

I plan to watch the launch tomorrow from Chincoteague. Hopefully, the weather won’t postpone it until Thursday, when I won’t be able to come down.
