WALLOPS ISLAND, VA (WECT) - Ever wonder what a rocket launch looks like? Tuesday night may be your best chance to see one without leaving your own backyard.

NASA will launch rocket Minotaur from its Wallops Island, Virginia space facility at 8:15 p.m. (originally scheduled for 7:30) Tuesday evening. The launch may be visible from southeastern North Carolina near or just after that time.

To try to view Minotaur, look north-northeast, just above the horizon between 7:30 and 7:40 p.m. Patchy high-level clouds may restrict viewing in some areas, but for the most part, skies will be clear.
