NASA has postponed the launch of Orbital ATK’s Antares rocket.

The rocket was originally scheduled to launch last morning (11).

NASA tweeted that the launch was postponed “after an aircraft was detected in the vicinity of the launch pad.”

The launch has been rescheduled for today.

NASA says the launch is expected to be visible from much of the East Coast.

According to NASA’s calculations, spectators in Central Virginia will likely be able to see the rocket about 90 seconds after launching.

The rocket will deliver 7,400 pounds of crew supplies and hardware to the International Space Station.
