Central California residents could feel a sonic boom tomorrow night due to a launch at Vandenberg Air Force Base.
Vandenberg AFB personnel will assist in the launch of a SAOCOM 1A satellite on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. The goal for SpaceX is to land the first stage of the Falcon 9 at Vandenberg. This will be SpaceX's first land landing attempt at the Air Force base.
The launch is scheduled for October 7 at 7:21 p.m. PDT. Local residents will be able to see the first stage of the Falcon 9 return. Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo residents could experience one or more sonic booms.
