NASA launch from Wallops tonight!

There is a launch of a moon probe tonight from NASA Wallops down the Delmarva peninsular from Wilmington.  Orbital Science, the company that put together the launch vehicle,  have helpfully supplied a Google Earth file which plots the trajectory of the launch so that you can see where to look from your own location on the East Coast.  The only problem is there are very few 3D landmarks in Delaware to use as a reference.

Here is the view from second base in Frawley Stadium looking southeast.  You can see the trajectory of the rocket over the bleachers.

There is coverage of the launch at the NASA website.

Look Southeast at 11:27pm.
