The launch of the Dawn spacecraft, which will visit the two largest asteroid Ceres and Vesta, has been postponed due to weather. Launch is now scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 27 sometime between 7:20 a.m. to 7:49 a.m. EDT.

Given that I'm two hours earlier than that, I'll wake up to the news. :-) You can keep up with the spacecraft news on the Dawn website. Launch will be on NASA TV too.
