WALLOPS ISLAND, Va. (AP) - The launch of a Defense Department rocket from Wallops Island has been postponed due to inclement weather.

The launch window for the Terrier-Lynx suborbital rocket was originally set to open on Tuesday. NASA says the rocket will now launch no earlier than Saturday night.

A second rocket is expected to be launched about two weeks after the first rocket.

The rockets may be visible to residents in the mid-Atlantic region.

NASA officials say there will be no real-time launch status updates at the request of the Department of Defense. The launches also won’t be shown live on the Internet.
