The Thomas Jefferson Memorial in Washington, DC as seen during the early morning hours of 17 November 2018. A flight trail of an Antares rocket – with Cygnus resupply spacecraft onboard – appears over the memorial. The rocket was launched from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, about 185 km (115 mi) southeast of the capital. The cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station delivered about 3,350 kg (7,400 lb) of scientific research equipment and crew supplies to the orbital laboratory and its crew.
