We may be well positioned on the western shore of the middle Chesapeake Bay to watch some night launches from the NASA facility at Wallops Island VA. The story is here: http://www.tgdaily.com/space-features/61943-nasa-rocket-experiment-will-light-up-sky. Using the line-of-sight analysis tool: http://www.heywhatsthat.com/main-0904.html?view=JIMUDH2M I estimate that a lot of the bay should be able to see the launch when it gets to about 1/2 mile above the launch pad. It looks like the Marine Warning is the best way to estimate a launch window: http://www.nasa.gov/centers/wallops/home/marine.html. This shows that the night of March 14 11PM til 6 AM is the first window. It looks like the following nights at this time may be backup times and follow on shots.
UPDATE: Finally took place around 5 AM Tue 3/27
