An anomaly occurred during final chronology for Flight 193-HELIOS 2B, thus halting the count-down.
Since the launch was to occur within a precise instant, a new attempt was not possible today.
The launch vehicle and its HELIOS 2B satellite payload are in stand-by mode and maintained in fully safe conditions.
A new date for the mission will be announced as soon as possible.

We left for the observing site at 10:00pm and got there at 10:40pm. The village is only 15 kms from Bhuj but due to bad roads it takes more time to reach! We were on bikes and on the way we saw 4 meteors. Here is the brief detail of our observation....
