Thread: Wallops Launch

  1. #11
    Scrubbed again due to clouds. Next window isn't until 11-June at the earliest.

    At least I get to sleep in this week...

    I think you are jinxing it. Next time they schedule a launch, stay in bed and see if they go ahead.

    They're going to try again this evening between 9:04 and 9:19. At least I don't have to get up before o'dark :30. But it was nice having the parking area all to myself at that hour, only one other enthusiast. When the launches are at dusk, many people show up and are kind of crude sometimes. The worst are those arriving 2 seconds before the launch with headlights blaring. Takes forever to get your night vision back.

    I'm going to head out about 8:30 and find a place here near Lexington Park to catch it.

    Again.... but it's ok as far as I'm concerned. Gets me out of the house, watch the sunset (or the sunrise as the case may be), meet a few new folks... One of these days we'll get to see the launch, and life will be good.
