ATLANTIC, Va. (AP) - NASA has canceled the launch of five suborbital sounding rockets because of an internal radio frequency interference issue with one of the rockets.
But skywatchers along the East Coast may be able to see the NASA experiment later this week.
The experiment is meant to learn more about the little-understood jet stream current at the edge of space.
NASA has rescheduled the launch from coastal Virginia for no earlier than March 16.
They will release a chemical trail to track winds that circle the planet at up to 300 miles per hour in the thermosphere about 65 miles up.
Officials say the long, milky-white clouds should be visible for about 20 minutes from Myrtle Beach, S.C. to southern New Hampshire, and as far west as Morgantown, W.Va.
That covers major cities like Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York and Boston, although it depends on ground lighting, cloud cover and the rockets' trajectory.
