The launch of an Atlas V rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base has been pushed back to Saturday morning.
It's now scheduled to lift off at 12:13 AM on Saturday.
Crews needed more time to resolve an instrumentation issue that came up during the first launch attempt on Thursday morning.
Officials say there are no problems with the rocket itself.
Once launched, the rocket will carry a payload from the National Reconnaissance Office into orbit.
There's a 90% chance of favorable weather conditions for the launch.
