Dear Sir, Mr. sunnyVan
Just the White Trail of the Smoke of the rocket , Per the Web site tell us.

"The potentially spectacular nighttime launch may be visible from northeastern Canada and Maine down to Florida, and from as far inland as Michigan, Indiana and Kentucky, according to maps provided by NASA and Orbital Sciences, the aerospace firm providing the Minotaur 1."

But, I do not have a chance to shoot the Rocket in my life, And I will try to night.
Thanks.

Surapon, Thanks for letting us know about the launch....

I could see it from just north of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.... it was fairly low, about 5 or 6 degrees up from the ground, and I could see it for about 30 seconds...

Shot this one with my camera pushed to the limit..... 60D, HANDHELD!!!!, 1/15 second, F4, and 200mm at ISO12,800...., the picture is cropped to the limit!

Good tip, saw this thread 20 minutes before launch. Not a great shot (only had my 35mm prime) but was happy with the result.  View is from my neighbor's front yard, 6D with tripod.
