Atlas V Rocket scheduled to launch out of Vandenberg Air Force Base

An Atlas V Rocket is scheduled to launch out of Vandenberg Air Force Base Thursday night.

The launch could happen anytime from 11:13 p.m. on.

The rocket is carrying a classified national security payload and several small satellites into orbit.

If the sky is clear, the launch should be visible from as far away as San Francisco, Sacramento, Fresno, and San Diego.

There is always the possibility that the launch could be rescheduled if there are any weather issues or technical problems.
