All is go for a 12:52 pm launch of Cygnus’s second operational cargo flight to ISS.
If you live on the east coast of the U.S. you should be able to see some part of this launch when it happens.
Cygnus has lifted off.
The main engine has cut off and the first stage has successfully separated.
The second stage has ignited successfully. It has now completed its burn and has separated from the spacecraft. Cygnus is in orbit.
