There’s a unique opportunity for stargazers tonight, Friday, Sept. 6. If you look up, you might spot a rocket launch off the Virginia coast.
The last day of summer is Sept. 21. Or, you can look at it this way: The first day of fall is Sept. 22. Patch has found something for you to do each day as we count down until summer passes us by.

While the mission won't land on the moon, the rocket is designed to orbit it, marking the first time the Virginia facility will host a launch that streaks beyond the Earth's orbit.
