Rocket carrying satellite set to launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base

LOMPOC, Calif. -- A rocket carrying a satellite will be launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base Saturday night.

The United Launch Alliance rocket will lift off at 8:15 p.m. It was originally scheduled to launch Friday afternoon, but the attempt was scrubbed after issues between the control center and the launch site.

The rocket, a Delta IV Heavy, will carry a government reconnaissance satellite.

ULA has carried out 27 launches for the National Reconnaissance Office over the past 12 years.
