The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launches from Vandenberg Air Force Base carrying the SAOCOM 1A and ITASAT 1 satellites, as seen on October 7, 2018 near Santa Barbara, California. After launching the satellites, the Falcon 9 rocket successfully returned to land on solid ground near the launch site rather than at sea. The satellites will become part of a six-satellite constellation that will work in tandem with an Italian constellation known as COSMO-SkyMed.
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Update: The launch has been canceled on Wednesday.
You may want to look up at the sky this week, because you could be catching a bright light streaking across the sky out of Vandenberg Air Force Base.
Vandenberg has scheduled the launch of the rocket for Wednesday morning.
The launch was originally scheduled for Tuesday night, but was delayed. The rocket will be carrying satellites into orbit and could create quite the light show.
23ABC will be live streaming the launch on our Facebook page at 7:43 a.m., as well as all of our social platforms, so be sure to tune in!
