UPDATE 8:04 p.m.

WALLOPS ISLAND, VA — NASA will try to launch a rocket from its Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia on Saturday night.

The rocket launch window is set to begin at 8:02 p.m. with a 40-minute launch window.

The rocket may be visible from New York to the southwest 30 to 60 seconds after the launch. For most people, the rocket will look like a small dot moving quickly through the sky, similar to the International Space Station passing over, but much faster, NASA says.

The mission is called KiNet-X, with the Black Brant XII rocket blasting off. This study will help scientists better understand things like Auroras and how they are formed and their movement from place to place.

The rocket will release a barium vapor about 9-10 minutes into the flight north of Bermuda at an altitude of more than 200 miles. NASA will be studying the vapor release with diagnostic instrumentation onboard the rocket.

The KiNet-X experiment consists of a single rocket launch carrying seven separable payloads. Diagnostic instrumentation is carried on the main payload and four small subpayloads, while the barium vapor clouds will be released from two additional larger subpayloads, NASA said in a news release.

Live coverage of the mission is available on the Wallops IBM video site.
