The launch of the Northop Grumman’s Minotaur 1 rocket went off without a hitch Tuesday morning, but as far as Seacoast residents were concerned, it was a bust.

The launch, originally scheduled for 7 a.m. was delayed because of weather at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia and went up at 9:35 a.m.

If not for clouds over the Seacoast, it would have been visible right after the launch.

"Nobody would have gotten a picture of that rocket launch this morning. It was completely fogged out and it was cloudy. Right now I can hear planes going over but you can't see them," photographer Shawn St. Hilaire of Rollinsford told Seacoast Current. He was excited to take a picture of the Black Brant XII rocket during its final launch attempt in May.

What's the next sky event for the Seacoast?

NASA spokesman Keith Koehler told Seacoast Current a Northrop Grumman Antares rocket is scheduled to launch the Cygnus NG-16, a resupply mission to the International Space Station from Wallops on Sunday, August 1.
