Video: Timelapse of NASA’s Minotaur Rocket Launch seen from Virginia

A rocket streaked through the sky Tuesday night in Maryland and for hundreds of miles across the eastern U.S. as NASA launched a mission from the Delmarva peninsula.

The launch was to be visible as far west as Indiana, north to Maine and Canada, and south to northern Florida.
