“Visibility will be more difficult than a nighttime launch, but sharp eyes will still be able to see it from Richmond,” CBS 6 chief meteorologist Zach Daniel said. “We’ll have a delay of about 80 seconds after liftoff before it is visible.”

The spacecraft should arrive at the space station Friday, April 19.
