    Great page up on the Orbital Sciences site on sighting ops for the launch of LADEE on Friday night:
    
    http://www.orbital.com/NewsInfo/MissionUpdates/MinotaurV/index.shtml
    
    
    I had a few questions that perhaps the keen minds on this message board could answer;
    
    -How many pieces of hardware will the LADEE/Minotaur V launch generate in orbit?
    
    -Will LADEE+hardware be visible to the naked eye/binocs once in Earth orbit pre-trans lunar injection?
    
    -I'm pretty certain  that this is the first lunar mission to depart Wallops, but has the site been used for orbital launches previous?
    
    Thanks in advance,
