High winds postpone Tuesday’s rocket launch

SAN DIEGO – The Delta IV Heavy launch was canceled on Tuesday because of high winds. The launch is now scheduled for Wednesday at 5:44 p.m. PST.

Southern Californians will most probably be seeing a colorful display in the sky on Wednesday as a rocket is expected to lift off from Vandenberg Air Force Base.

The Delta IV rocket is all set to launch at 5:57 p.m. from the military base located in the Santa Barbara County. The rocket is known to carry a reconnaissance satellite into orbit.

It was earlier planned to launch on December 8, but it was scrubbed a few seconds before liftoff due to a technical issue.

Rocket launches from the Air base of California have created remarkable light shows in the skies over the West Coast. Wednesday’s launch may rival a few other spectacular displays depending on cloud cover.
