    For those along the US East Coast, NASA is planning to launch five 
    Terrier-Malemute sounding rockets over a five minute span tonight (sometime between 
    midnight to 1:30 AM, EDT) from Wallops Island, Virginia.
    "As part the mission, the five rockets will release a chemical tracer that 
    will form milky, white clouds that allow scientists and the public to “see” 
    the winds in space. These clouds may be visible for up to 20 minutes by 
    residents from South Carolina to southern New Hampshire and Vermont."
