    Atlas V Launch Tonight

    There is an Atlas V scheduled for launch tonight with the launch window opening up at 7:13 p.m.

    It's carrying a SATCOM satellite with some top secret spy shit and has a pretty good weather outlook at 80% odds. Winds are a little sketchy right now, and we have a front getting ready to slide through and rain on us pretty good starting tomorrow, but I think she's ok for tonight. The Atlas V is fuckin' noisy as hell and makes for a nice bright light in the sky when it's dark or dusk, but at seven o'clock, it's still completely light out, so no cookies for me. Either way, I'll have a great show from the front porch, as will anyone on the Space Coast.

    Keep your eyes open Walt.

    Walt are you out there bro, you've been awful quiet of late.
    Thought I heard it taking off but turned out to be Michael Moore ripping one out in LA

    Thank you George for your astute insight...

    NASA is probably putting up another surveillance state appliance to monitor us. NASA Never A Straight Answer.

    I still ill get a kick out of them erasing all those tapes...

    At at least we have some footage that tells some of the truth. Lots of life out there...
