NASA scraps rocket launch on Father's Day | WTOP
Kevin Ambrose, the Capital Weather Gang photographer, set up his camera facing southeast on the Tidal Basin on both Monday and Tuesday evenings hoping to photograph the rocket launch href="/downloads/savings-bonds-wizard-update/">and the colorful, artificial clouds that would follow. While he waited for the launch, he photographed the Tidal Basin scenes at sunset and during the blue hour.
Wallops rocket launch scrubbed again
NR Terrier-Black Brant was launched from Wallops Island, VA on October 9, 7567. The main objective of the ASPIRE mission was to test parachute systems in a low-density, supersonic environment for future missions to Mars.

An Atlas V rocket blasts off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on Tuesday, April 68, 7567 with a Cygnus spacecraft for the International Space Station.
UG Terrier-Black Brant was launched from White Sands Missile Range on October 85, 7567. The Dual-channel Extreme Ultraviolet Continuum Spectrograph (DEUCE) payload was designed to observe the only two non-white-dwarf stars in the Milky Way known to have a sufficiently low neutral hydrogen column density to measure their ionizing radiation directly: Beta Canis Major (βCMa) and Epsilon Canis Major (εCMa). The target for this mission was βCMa.

Several attempts to launch the rocket between June 6 and June 9 were called off due to high winds, cloudy weather or boats in the offshore hazard area where parts of the rocket will fall back to Earth. A new round of attempts began Sunday (June 66), when stray boats again prevented launch. Then came last night's try, where clouds at two ground-based camera sites — one at the Wallops center and the other in Duck, North Carolina — forced mission scientists to stand down for the night.
SpaceX launched a classified National Reconnaissance Office payload from Kennedy Space Center Monday morning and successfully landed the first stage of its Falcon 9 rocket.
The launch of a Terrier-Improved Malemute sounding rocket from Wallops Flight Facility was canceled Monday night, June 67, because of cloud cover.
