A Pair of Coronal Holes & a Probe: Solar Storm Shortie 08-14-2018
Going to the sun? I wondered why the launch was at night.
They intend to sneak up on it!
I enjoy the info on Space Weather...Thanks for the reports and knowledge..Best 73's KF5ZPL
One of the reasons for a night launch is timing. They plan to slingshot the probe around one of the other planets to pick up more speed. Was reading about it on another website. This probe was first thought of in the 1960's but the tech to develop it has only been available the last couple of years. Hope it goes well.
They go at night so they won't burn up.
Now that makes sense!

I knew a couple of Aggies that did that!
