A rogue aircraft strayed into the hazard area in the final minute of countdown early Saturday and blew the chance to launch an Antares rocket carrying a Cygnus cargo craft to the International Space Station from Wallops Island.
Orbital ATK's Cygnus mission will be launched on Sunday morning after scrubbing its original lift-off on Saturday.
A rocket launch on Virginia's Eastern Shore should be visible across Northern Virginia on Saturday morning.
The mission will be the eighth for Orbital ATK, which has a $1.9bn (£1.44bn) contract with NASA to resupply the ISS over several years. Live launch coverage will begin at 7 a.m. on NASA Television and the agency's website.
The culprit, a small personal aircraft that entered the restricted airspace was within a 6 miles (10 kilometers) offshore flying at an altitude of about 500 feet, which could have been unsafe for the lift-off.
"We were working no issues until an aircraft flew into restricted airspace", the aerospace company said on Twitter.
NASA says it will try again at 6:14 a.m. Sunday. "We are now de-tanking and will be ready to go tomorrow morning". The launch time temperature was forecast to be 25-30 degrees. The launch is expected to be visible across much of the East Coast.
The interior of the rocket was packed to the brim with crew supplies and science experiments weighing a total of 7,400 pounds, the equivalent of three Toyota Corollas. And it may go down as one of the last to bear the familiar Orbital logo.
