    Current next launch:

    MAY 5 04:05-06:05 Atlas V SLC-3E Vehicle will send the Mars InSight spacecraft and two communications relay satellites to Mars. If the launch occurs before dawn, it could be visible for more than 300 miles.

    ——————
    First past launch original thread message:

    Supposed to be visibly impressive. You can also watch it online at space.com with broadcasting starting at 5:05

    From Vadenbergs website:

    Vehicle will launch Iridium Next commercial communications satellites 31-40. This launch occurs 30 minutes after Vandenberg AFB sunset. The rocket's bright flame should be visible over a wide area. The launch could be impressive beginning at T+ 2 minutes 12 seconds when simulations show the exhaust plume will be illuminated at high altitude by the sun.

    Thanks for the heads up. We can usually see the VAFB launch exhaust plumes from my front porch. I’ll keep an eye out for it.

    #3 7 months ago

    Space.com live broadcast is cool that’s on right now also

    Nice art! It was awesome from my backyard

    #6 7 months ago

    I grew up in Lompoc and we’d always run outside when the rumble started and watch them until they were out of sight and then run back in. This brings back some fond childhood memories. Awesome shots you got there.

    #7 7 months ago

    I walked outside of my son’s house in Gilbert Arizona tonight, and we saw it. I was amazed as it looked so close. At first we thought UFO, but we saw on the internet what it was. Very cool to see it.

    Is anyone reading this or care?

    Delayed till Sunday at 6:17

    The first SpaceX launch of the year from Vandenberg is now scheduled to liftoff Sunday at 6:16 a.m. from Space Launch Complex-4.

    #23 5 months ago

    Delayed yet again...doesn’t seem like anyone’s reading this though.

    #24 5 months ago

    I’m hanging on your every word. You just saved me from an early wake up call tomorrow.

    #25 5 months ago

    I'm reading but for some reason I can't see it from my house in Minnesota. I wonder why. Your lucky that you can see them, the night time ones are way cool and they drive those "we have never been to space" wackos bonkers.

    #26 5 months ago

    Following, love launches.

    #27 5 months ago

    Ok I’ll keep it updated then

    #28 5 months ago

    FEB 21 06:17 Falcon 9
    Vehicle will launch Spain's Paz earth observation satellite and two secondary payloads. Liftoff occurs 24 minutes before Vandenberg AFB sunrise. This means the exhaust plume will probably be illuminated by the sun when the vehicle reaches high altitude. Delayed from FEB 18

    We were visiting in Florida a few months ago and drove out to Cape Canaveral to watch one of the space X launch, it was delayed one day and they were supposed to lainch so we make the hour drive stop to get something to eat, i figured i would check to see if it was still a go and they ended up canceling again. We ended up eating dinner took the wife shopping then drove back. Never saw a big rocket launch in person and was bummed i missed it.

    #31 5 months ago

    Yeah since I been following these launches I have come to expect a lot of delays.

    #32 5 months ago

    Following. Is it 7:17 am cst.

    #33 5 months ago

    If it’s not overcast, I can see the VAFB launches from my front door, but because of the hills, they quickly disappear over the horizon. The best view around here is from a parking lot above the cliffs just south of Avila Beach.

    Quoted from chad:

    Following. Is it 7:17 am cst.
