So Let's Try Again Tonight!

So, about 9:15 PM I went out to watch the Southern sky, to see the pretty colored rocket launch promised from Wallops Island. It was a clear sky, with no storms so I expected a launch. No go! What happened? Sounding rocket launch scrubbed due to boats in hazard area, NASA says
Sunday's launch of a Terrier-Improved Malemute sounding rocket scheduled from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility was postponed due to boats in the launch range hazard area, NASA officials say.
Stupid boaters! It would be a shame to get hit by a falling piece of astro-trash.  But they're going to try again tonight
The launch has been rescheduled for Monday, June 12 with a launch window between 9:04 p.m. and 9:19 p.m. EDT. 
Maybe we'll go down to the beach for a better view.
