For the upcoming night launches, what's the schedule like (haven't been to one before)? Is there a break between the usual day launch and when the night launch starts, or does one just flow into the other (wondering about time for grabbing supper some place or if we should just plan to bring something to eat between the day and night launches)? How late does a night launch typically run?

We do our usual tear down and packing of everything into the trailer, and then move down to the on field parking/dirt road area with the trailer. Then we set up the 3 pad CMASS loaner pad and 6 pack controller just off the dirt road and wait for the appropriate amount of darkness. It is a matter of making sure we can get everything packed away before it gets too dark, which will probably be a bit more difficult for the second/last of the night launches.

Hello everyone,

For this coming (and final) night launch on Saturday, November 20th, what is the largest motor we can burn? I have a bunch of E's and a couple of F-67s. I have "simmed" both and should stay well below a 300-meter apogee.
