LADEE to the Moon! As seen from the Top of the Rock, Rockefeller Center, about 200 miles north of the launch pad, the first Orbital Sciences Minotaur V rocket sends NASA's LADEE spacecraft on its way to the Moon! The Empire State Building was lit up green and blue in honor of the U.S. Open of Tennis, being played in Flushing, Queens, the week of the launch.
