Amateur rocketeers to launch 50 pound rocket

The Southern Colorado Rocketeers and the Valkyrie Civil Air Patrol Squadron plan to launch a 50 pound rocket on Saturday southwest of Pueblo.

They hope the rocket will reach 7,000 feet above the ground.  It has a total of 7 rocket motors that will fire in sequence.  And it will shoot video on the way. 

It will happen Saturday at 9 a.m. at the Hobson Ranch off Highway 78 southwest of Pueblo.  Other rockets will launch throughout the day.  Spectators get in free.
