If NASA sticks to the current scheduled launch of the KiNET-X sounding rocket on Tuesday, May 11 at 8:05 p.m., we could get a bit of a show in the sky.


The rocket is being launched from Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. Visibility in the night sky will be optimal for stargazers in Southern New England about :30-:60 seconds after the launch. CBS Boston has more details below.

Tuesday evening will be the best viewing potential for southern New England since the rocket’s initial launch date last Friday.
