A Missile Might Launch Tonight

Weather permitting, Vandenberg Air Force Base will launch another Minotaur missile this evening, bearing a payload of the most advanced orbital mind control lasers:

Liftoff of the Minotaur rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California is scheduled for 5:10 p.m. PDT (8:10 p.m. EDT; 0010 GMT), the opening of a three-hour launch window. But meteorologists are predicting an 80 percent chance of violating the launch weather rules.

Maybe you caught the last Minotaur launch in September, which was pretty spectacular(see more photos from all along the Cali/Baja coast in the Flickr ‘minotaur’ cluster). I don’t know if tonights would be as bold, since I expect that the sky may not be as dark as it was then. Maybe it will. Either way I will be watching and waiting with my camera.

  1. Did you see it? I peeked out the window and saw rain and didn’t even bother, but I noticed the skies were a bit clearer to the south of us.
