LADEE streaks over Greenwich

|

A NASA rocket carrying the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environmental Explorer, otherwise known as LADEE, is seen headed for the moon streaking across the night sky over Greenwich Harbor, 11:28 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6, 2013. The Minotaur rocket, launched from Virginia, and visible in the sky from South Carolina to Maine, carried a spacecraft that will conduct a 100 day mission to measure lunar dust and examine the lunar atmosphere from an orbit of 40 miles above the surface of the moon. For more information on this first-ever moon launch from the State of Virginia, please see the blog post of my colleague, Jim Shay.
