According to a tweet by NASA, there’s an 80% chance of good weather at launch time this afternoon. The Wallops Flight Facility will make a second attempt to send the Cygnus space craft to the International Space Station at 3:43 p.m. this afternoon. The launch should be visible over much of the East Coast. The Antares Rocket was shifted to a horizontal position Thursday morning to allow the loading of supplies and experiments back into the Cygnus capsule:

The launch was scrubbed Sunday due to off-nominal data from ground support equipment.
WESR will join NASA TV for the countdown at 3:25 p.m. today.
