Watch Monday night’s rocket takeoff live



After launch attempts were scrubbed Saturday and Sunday night, a Black Brant XII rocket is now set to launch no earlier then 8:03 p.m. Monday, May 11, from the Wallops Flight Facility.

The launch will have a window of 40 minutes, and the rocket may be visible from the Atlantic coast to the Mississippi River as it thunders overhead.

Black Brant XII, carrying the KiNET-X payload, is a four-stage sounding rocket that can reach altitudes over 200 miles above Earth’s surface, according to NASA Wallops Flight Facility. 

NASA Wallops Visitor Center will not be open for viewing, but you can watch the launch live, with coverage starting at about 7:40 p.m.
