It was a historic weekend for NASA’s Flight Facility on Wallops Island.
Around 15-hundred visitors watched the first lunar launch last Friday from the Virginia facility.
Thousands more saw the rocket take flight from Maine to the Carolinas…with spectacular shot streaking across the sky above New York.
But the rocket immediately ran into some equipment problems.
By Saturday NASA officials said the rocket was still on track for the moon saying that the troubles would be worked out over the next two or three weeks.
