  • Rocket launch from Vandenburg AFB - Thurs June 7

    For those interested in this sort of thing, there's a Delta 2 rocket launch from Vandenburg on Thursday June 7. If it's clear outside and ya wanna see it, go outside at 7:20pm and face west. As you can see below the launch window is from 7:21-7:34. If you've never seen a launch it's pretty darn cool.


    JUN 7
    19:21-19:34
    Delta II
    Payload is the Italian COSMO 1

    I grew up 5 miles away from VAFB. The rocket launches were always a reason to throw a party.

      Something tells me that if I go out at that time and face West, I will no see anything.

        OK Ok if you live in the Southern California region, then go out and look.

        Although I've known people in Phoenix that have seen the contrails from there before.

            Thanks for the reminder! Rocket launches are one of the most amazing things to watch. My father is an executive for Boeing Satellite Systems, so I have seen many live launches.

              Very cool, hopefully it won't be cloudy tomorrow night.

              We'll definately have the camera ready as you can see them pretty good from the VC.

                    So. Did it launch? We watched from 7:20 to 7:35 and didn't see anything.

                      So far... nothing. Awww. It's spectacular when it happens.

                        I didn't see anything either, and the VAB site does not say whether it was scrubbed or not.

                          Last year about this time, there were some crazy contrails in the evening, above you could see from Tomorrowland. I believe it was the same thing, last year.
