In the early morning, while standing in the wet grass at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, NASA astronaut Kay Hire describes what it's like to attend a rocket launch.

This audio postcard was recorded in May 2018 at NASA Wallops during the launch of the Antares OA-9 Cygnus to the International Space Station.

The next launch of an Antares Cygnus resupply mission is scheduled to launch no earlier than 4:01 a.m. EST on Nov. 17, 2018 from Virginia Space’s Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport, located at NASA Wallops.
