There's a pretty good chance that a rocket launch from coastal Virginia will be visible across South Jersey tonight.

According to the folks at NASA, a rocket with supplies headed for the International Space Station is set to blast-off tonight. The five-minute launch window opens at 9:38 PM.

If skies remain clear, it will be visible roughly one minute after launch across our region. For the best view, head towards the beaches.

NASA says the weather remains 70% favorable for launch. Our Chief Meteorologist Dan Zarrow says an approaching cold front will bring some clouds to our region late tonight with some rain in the forecast after midnight -- hopefully the clouds allow the launch to be visible.
