ATLANTIC, Va.- NASA says it has postponed the launch of a suborbital rocket for the Department of Defense from the Wallops Island Facility on Virginia's Eastern shore.

The Terrier-Lynx rocket was scheduled to be launched the evening of Tuesday, Dec. 18. NASA did not provide a reason for the postponement. A new launch date has not yet been determined.

The next launch from Wallops Flight is a NASA Terrier-Orion suborbital sounding rocket scheduled for late January.
