Tonight at 6:22 p.m., Susquehanna Valley residents will be able to see the launch of a private Antares rocket. Originally scheduled for Monday evening, the launch was postponed due to a boat downrange in the hazard area, according to NASA.

"A private Antares rocket was scheduled to light up the sky Monday evening launching from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Virginia... The skies may be a bit more cloudy with high clouds in the forecast for this evening. However, if the clouds are thin enough, we should still have a chance to see the rocket launch in the southeast skies!" according to an article posted on WGAL's website by Matt Moore on Tuesday morning.
