Launch From NASA Cancelled Until Wednesday

The ORS-1 launch scheduled from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility was postponed for today due to lightening in the surrounding areas. Hoping that there will be a launch tomorrow evening.
Some of the areas we were pelted with rain blown by heavy winds. Then came the sharp lightening and lots of loud rolling thunder!
Then a rainbow...............or two.

We were near there to watch but the mosquitoes got to be too bad. Came home to watch from the back yard and the mosquitoes are worse. I've given up....... Plenty of peple along side roads, etc. waiting. Should be a nice sight.....
