do you work for the NRO and what was the rocket carrying ?

I'm currently watching it now and waiting for lift off but i can only wait so long to see a rocket take off so it better hurry up

No. I live close by and can see most VAFB launches from my backyard.

Don't know what it is carrying.

Launches are always better to view at night.

We look to the west and the setting sun makes it hard to see.

In December, the last time they launched at sunset was awesome. The best launch I had ever seen.
