Current next launch:
OCT 7 19:21 Falcon 9 SLC-4E Vehicle will launch Argentina's SAOCOM-1A satellite. A preliminary analysis by Rick Baldrige indicates the rocket's exhaust plume will be illuminated by the sun around the time of stage 2 ignition. An attempt will be made to have the jettisoned first stage make a powered soft landing at Vandenberg.
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.
