Another NASA-Wallops Launch tomorrow at 10:50am

I did not see the LADEE launch from NASA Wallops earlier in the month.  But a ton of people did. Tomorrow (Wednesday September 18th), Oribital Sciences and NASA Wallops will launch the Antares/Cygnus mission to resupply the International Space Station.  Viewing possibilities from the Mid-Atlantic region can be found here.  I made another view from Rt141 and Rt48 west of Wilmington Delaware to show where to look but I used the Google earth data from the April launch information since there didn't seem to be a file from tomorrow's launch.

You can see the Delaware Memorial bridge just under the red part of the trajectory left of center in the picture.  That's a pretty visible point to look for while looking south east.

The window is from 10:50 am to 11:05 am.  Maybe we can see this one.
