Third attempt at Nasa rocket launch tonight
A rocket launch that will produce a light show north of the island is due to take place tonight.
The rocket, which will cause florescent green and violet skies after it releases barium gas into the atmosphere, was expected to take off last Friday.
But strong winds delayed the launch until around 9pm tonight.
The rocket, which will take off from a Nasa base in Virginia, will release its load just north of Bermuda about ten minutes into its flight.
The launch is part of a Nasa experiment to study energy flows in Earth’s upper atmosphere.
But the resulting light display will only be visible to the naked eye for about 30 seconds.
