NASA is going to its backup plan to launch a rocket off the coast of virginia tomorrow evening. The Defense Department rocket was originally scheduled to go up last week.

NASA will try again tomorrow evening between 8 and 8:30 a.m., to launch the Terrier-Lynx suborbital rocket. People in the mid-Atlantic region may be able to see it, weather permitting.

The rocket will be launched from the Wallops Island Facility on Virginia's Eastern Shore. But once the countdown begins, NASA  won't provide launch updates via social media. There won't be tweets and the launch won't be broadcast on the internet because it's a rocket for the Defense Department. The flight facility won't be open to the public to view the launch, NASA says.

A map showing the area in which the rocket launch may be visible will be available on NASA's website.
