Rocket Lab launching its rocket, Electron F18 Kramer, up into the sky on a mission called ‘Another One Leaves The Crust' will show a ‘sunset phenomenon' lighting effect moments after launch.

The launch was expected to start T-12 minutes after 7:35 pm NZT.

A temporary freeze of the launch time occurred due to weather changes. Fortunately, they did not give up and did not cann the mission.

At around 8:13 pm NZT the timer started running for launch to initiate at T-13 minutes.

The new launch time was expected at around 8:25 pm NZT.

You can view the live stream starting at 7:35 pm (NZT) above, or on @thisquality platforms or at Rocket Lab's YouTube channel here.
