DMSP-17 Rocket Launch Saturday

A ten-minute launch window will open Saturday, November 4th, at 1:53 pm GMT (5:53 am PST) and close at 2:03 pm GMT (6:03 am PST) for a Delta IV Medium launch vehicle from Vandenberg Air Force Base.

If it's clear in Souther Califonia, It should be a colerfull sunrise light show. Look towards Santa Barbara.

Good launch, a cool view from the equipment shelf of the 1st stage booster separating from the 2nd stage with the 2nd stage engine nozzle extension extending. It was interesting seeing the ablative materials shedding from the extended engine nozzle.

To bad it's thick overcast in Long Beach. No light show.
