Look up tonight and you might just see NASA rockets

    Look closely enough tonight and somewhere between all the stars, planets and space junk you might just see rockets.

    NewsWorks multimedia producer Kim Paynter tells us NASA is sending up five rockets from Wallops, Va., to study wind speeds above Earth and how those electrical patterns can disrupt satellite communication.

    WDBJ7 reports you have the best shot of seeing the rockets until 1:30 a.m. Thursday.
