DID YOU SEE IT? Monday evening an Antares rocket was launched from Wallop’s Island, Virginia, after several days of launch delays. The rockets fiery trail was visible to sky watchers all over South Jersey, with Cape May County’s beaches offering some of the best views. After arcing into the sky for a few minutes it suddenly went dark, then became visible again as the rocket’s second stage began.
The latter part of the Antares rocket’s initial burn is visible in this photo, looking southward from Ocean City’s 9th Street causeway.
THIS WEEK’S WEATHER has been super, with daytime temperatures in the 70s and 80s, along with gentle breezes and clear skies. Occasional showers are expected late in the week, with cooler, dryer air moving in for the weekend. Enjoy the fall weather while it lasts!
