Delta-IV Heavy Launch Thursday at 2108UTC / 1308 PST

Mission Status

Launch was successful!

All I was able to see from here was a rather short, disappointing contrail. The last launch was a night launch, and was pretty cool to see. I tried to get some pix of that one, but didn't set my camera up on the tripod, so.....nothing but blurred pics.
Oh, well....


  1. It will be the largest ever launch from Vandy... Enjoy!

  2. I thought it was yesterday, so like a dummy I was out in the front yard with camera and the 400mm lens on it.

Keep it civil, please....
