Tampa, Florida 2021-05-11 21:02:10 –

NASA has announced that it will postpone Tuesday’s rocket launch at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia to Wednesday.

The agency said the KiNET-X sounding rocket launch was scrubbed due to the cloudy skies of Bermuda Shorts and Wallops.

The next launch opportunity is Wednesday at 8:06 pm EDT.

According to the agency, the backup date will last until Sunday.

The launch consists of the release of barium vapor that is harmless to the environment and public health, forming two green-purple clouds that can be seen for about 30 seconds.

According to NASA, a spherical cloud of green and purple appears shortly after the vapor is released.

They appear for about 30 seconds and turn purple when exposed to sunlight.
