NASA will launch five sounding rockets in five minutes from its Wallops Flight Facility on the coast of Virginia to study the high altitude jet stream.    It should make quite a show for people along the mid-Atlantic coast and inland.

NASA will provide a briefing on its "launch madness" campaign on Wednesday, March 7, 2012 at 1:00 pm ET.    The launches will take place sometime within the window of March 14 to April 4.

This NASA map shows where the rockets may be visible.
