SAN DIEGO – Southern Californians missed out on another colorful display in the sky Wednesday when a Delta IV rocket launch at Vandenberg Air Force Base was again cancelled minutes before liftoff.
The rocket had been scheduled to launch at 5:44 p.m. from the military base in Santa Barbara County. Its mission is to carry a reconnaissance satellite into orbit.
Launch Alert: we have declared a scrub for today's launch of the #DeltaIVHeavy. We will set up for a 24 hour recycle and the next launch attempt will be 12/20 at 5:31pm PST.
