(Video) Wondering what last night was glowing above Newport’s Ocean Drive (and the rest of the Eastern Seaboard)?

Wondering if you saw glow clouds last night on Newport’s Ocean Drive? This was apparently a NASA launch to study ionization in space far from Earth’s atmosphere. The eagle-eyed Newport Buzz reader, including Mohamed Chamseddine, Aiden Regan and CB Barrett, sent us photos, and both Alex Fitzpatrick and Bethany Kent figured out. A three-stage suborbital sounding rocket was launched for …
