Delta IV Heavy remains on schedule for Saturday launch from Vandenberg AFB


Vandenberg Air Force Base is preparing for a United Launch Alliance rocket launch scheduled for Saturday morning.

The ULA Delta IV Heavy rocket carrying a payload for the National Reconnaissance Office is set to take off Jan. 19 at 11:05 a.m.

Forecasts predict a 70 percent chance of favorable weather.

The launch might be visible over a large area including parts of Kern County.

This ULA launch has been postponed several times since mid-December due to mechanical issues.
