FALCON 9 LAUNCH CONFIRMED, SONIC BOOM POSSIBLE 30th Space Wing Public Affairs / Published June 08, 2019

VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- Team Vandenberg is scheduled to support the launch of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying the RADARSAT Constellation Mission from Space Launch Complex-4 on Wednesday, Jun. 12, with the launch window opening at 7:17 a.m. Pacific Time.

Col. Bob Reeves, 30th Space Wing vice commander, will be the space launch commander.

"Team V continues its dedication to assured access to space for the nation," said Reeves. "Partnership is vital to mission success, and we are proud to share the load of this mission with SpaceX."

SpaceX is attempting the secondary mission of landing the first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket at Landing Zone 4, which was previously called SLC-4W.

Local residents may see the first stage of the Falcon 9 returning to Vandenberg AFB, including multiple engine burns associated with the landing. During the landing attempt, residents from Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo counties may hear one or more sonic booms. A sonic boom is the sound associated with the shock waves from an aircraft or vehicle traveling faster than the speed of sound. Sonic booms generate a sound similar to an explosion or a clap of thunder. The sonic boom experienced will depend on weather conditions and other factors.

The public can view this launch from the Hawk's Nest on Azalea Lane off of Hwy 1 just over a mile south of Vandenberg AFB's main gate, which will open at 6 a.m. and close after the conclusion of the landing of the first stage.

This may only be visible near the coast... sun will already be well up so it will be harder to see.

Might be able to make out the faint smoke plume.

SpaceX is targeting Wednesday, June 12 for launch of the RADARSAT Constellation Mission from Space Launch Complex 4E (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. The primary launch window opens at 7:17 a.m. PDT, or 14:17 UTC, and closes at 7:30 a.m. PDT, or 14:30 UTC. The satellites will begin deployment approximately 54 minutes after launch.

I was at Costco today the high was around 75. I think we may see some sizeable rain in July. Seems like we are still in a favorable weather patterns we saw through the winter! [Click Here]

The other bit of bad news from Verizon was that older phones (I have an iPhone 8s) are going to have slower service when this upgrade is finished.

That's true, Benny. Nothing is set in stone. It can change. You are the expert when it comes to the weather, so you're a reliable source.

Regarding the Verizon service issues, Instopped by the Verizon store in the Staters center. I was told that towers are being upgraded for 4 & 5 g service. And that it was going to take a while longer. The person who helped me did something to my phone to reboot it & so far so good. Hubby is over there now having his phone looked at. I don’t understand why we customers weren’t told this was going to happen.

Not aware of any fires critter....
Dunno what you look at Quakes but nothing beyond 7 days is reliable, and even then iffy at best. Long range forecast models hinting at our first surge in monsoon moisture towards early July, so we could see some afternoon thunderstorms around independence day!
