Hello all,

Two more sounding rockets are scheduled for launch tonight from NASA's
Wallops Flight Facility, Virginia. A Black Brant 5 and Taurus-Orion will be
launched between 9:37 p.m. and 2:30 a.m. EDT, Wednesday, Jul. 7th.

The Taurus-Orion will produce a large milky-white cloud in the night sky a
few minutes after launch. Clear skies are needed to perform the experiment.

You can listen to the range safety surveillance aircraft on 311.2 MHz (AM
mode). Callsign is "KingAir 72 Oscar Charlie."
