Got up for a early morning rocket launch today that was visible in NJ. Could clearly see a streak of light in the sky that lit up the clouds. Saw Mars and Saturn in the south and Jupiter in the southwest. Pictures did not come out so good using just a cell phone camera, everything looked much better in person.
Rocket launch early Monday morning may be visible in NJ and the Middle Atlantic Region. Launch time is currently set at 4:39 AM EDT. From NJ look southeast and the rocket, a two-stage Antares rocket from Orbital ATK at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility, in Virginia may be visible at about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes after launch. Cygnus OA-9 is an automated resupply mission, with cargo headed to the International Space Station. The launch may make for a spectacle site as exhaust plume may be light up by the rising sun in the still dark predawn sky. Keep an eye at  NASA's Wallops Flight Facility for updates. The launch will also be covered live online and on NASA TV.

That’s no moon…it’s a space station. Wait that is a moon. Mimas is a real moon of Saturn. #maythefourthbewithyou #thatsnomoon #mimas #starwars #starwarsday #deathstar
Led Zeppelin is proclaimed by many critics to be the progenitors of heavy metal and hard rock, and their individualistic style reset the standards for many musical genres in the 1960s and 70's. Indeed, they have been hailed as one of the most successful, innovative and influential bands, alongside Pink Floyd, U2 and The Beatles. Now you can relive the magical sounds of Led Zeppelin while enjoying a visual treat of custom laser imagery.

Jupiter is finally making an appearance in the early evening sky. Just after the sun goes down look for Venus to appear shortly after sunset just behind the sun setting in the West and then turn to the East to see Jupiter rising around the same time. Image from EarthSky.org.
