THIS is what I’m here for. This is what pays for all of us to come and enjoy Kwaj.
Vandenberg launched a Minuteman III as a test (Google it for more info) and my fellow meteorologists and I provided weather support for the reentry corridor. Aside from a 45-minute delay due to weather at Vandenberg, so far as I’ve been permitted to know, it was a successful mission.
Next week there will be another one, so I’ll have another chance to try for an even better photo, provided the sky is as nice and clear as it was tonight.
