Sentinel 1B Launch

If you happened by yesterday to watch the launch of Sentinel 1B you know it was postponed due to weather issues.

The good part about the delay is I will get to see the launch if it goes as planned today.

ESA was kind enough to indicate the launch times in a variety of time zones:

Delayed again.  These times are listed on the ESA site, but may not be current  (they don’t seem to be ).

  • 06:02:13 p.m., (Local time in French Guiana)
  • 05:02:13 p.m., (in Washington, D.C.)
  • 09:02:13 p.m., (UTC)
  • 11:02:13 p.m., (in Paris)
  • 00:02:13 a.m., (in Moscow) on April

Here is the link for the live coverage from ESA.
