LADEE TO THE MOON! As seen from the Top of the Rock, Rockefeller Center, about 200 miles north of the launch pad at Wallops Island, Virginia, the first Orbital
Sciences Minotaur V rocket sends NASA's LADEE spacecraft on its way to the moon. The Empire State Building is lit up green and blue in honor of the US Open of
tennis, being played in Flushing, Queens this week.
