Three Terrier-Oriole suborbital rockets are scheduled for launch between 12:30 and 4:30 a.m., Monday, Feb. 23, for the Department of Defense from NASA’s launch range at the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

The rockets are scheduled to launch within a one-minute period and may be visible to residents in the mid-Atlantic region.  The back-up launch dates are Feb. 24 through 27.
