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 use Flightradar24 . It informs you about what type of air craft it is where it departed from and what time it departed. I saw a couple Mercy air busses flying to and from hospitals this morning.

Quakes, I've had more helicopters over head this summer than the last 3 combined, and that's including when they installed the new lift at Snow Valley. A neighbor told me one was a forestry helicopters checking the springs and other water areas for illegal grows.

They fly through the gap in topo between RS & Keller Peak, my home has been buzzed too many times, one was way too low; my neighbors all came out.

IDK, the closing was for another work site, not the bridge work, that light is scheduled to be there for 6 months. 2 years total for the second bridge, the next one down hill, is longer and will have a light too, according to CalTrans. Don't know if that is continual or if they will break between bridges for winter, but being near the bottom, I'm assuming they will not stop for winter.

Good morning SCM!
Soooo 330 is open again. Does that mean the traffic light is no more?

Hey gang! Craig here from VCA. We just finished our newest video discussing canine bloat. Its a nasty condition that strikes rather unexpectedly and seems to hit larger dogs more frequently. If you have a big dog (dane, shepherd, boxer, rott, etc) or if you hike, bike, run with your dog, you should check it out. Thanks for all your support. We're not selling anything in this video, just trying to give back with good information.
