Twin Tiers (WENY) - Tonight people along the east coast will have a chance to see a spectacular sight, if weather permits of course. The U.S. Air Force launch will send a rocket 29 satellites into orbit from NASA's Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport in Virginia.
     
The nighttime launch could light up the sky for millions of observers along the Eastern Seaboard. Here in the Twin Tiers we might be able to see it sometime during a two-hour launch window starting at 7:30 p.m.. The launch could be visible from northeastern Canada all the way to Florida.
