NASA successfully launched five rockets early this morning after nearly two weeks of delays, and here's what it looked like in case you missed it.

The rockets released chemical tracers that allow scientists to study patterns of the jet stream. The launch took place at 4:58 a.m. from the Wallops Flight Facility on the Virginia portion of the Delmarva.
