Cygnus on hold

A software glitch interrupted the planned docking early this morning (Sunday), and Cygnus has been hanging out a safe distance away from the station.  Orbital Sciences has already identified the problem, and expects to have a fix uplinked in time to make another attempt on Tuesday.  On the upside, this gives viewers on the ground a few more chances to see Cygnus and ISS flying in formation.  😉
