FALCON 9 LAUNCH CONFIRMED, SONIC BOOM POSSIBLE 30th Space Wing Public Affairs / Published June 08, 2019

VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- Team Vandenberg is scheduled to support the launch of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying the RADARSAT Constellation Mission from Space Launch Complex-4 on Wednesday, Jun. 12, with the launch window opening at 7:17 a.m. Pacific Time.

Col. Bob Reeves, 30th Space Wing vice commander, will be the space launch commander.

"Team V continues its dedication to assured access to space for the nation," said Reeves. "Partnership is vital to mission success, and we are proud to share the load of this mission with SpaceX."

SpaceX is attempting the secondary mission of landing the first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket at Landing Zone 4, which was previously called SLC-4W.

Local residents may see the first stage of the Falcon 9 returning to Vandenberg AFB, including multiple engine burns associated with the landing. During the landing attempt, residents from Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo counties may hear one or more sonic booms. A sonic boom is the sound associated with the shock waves from an aircraft or vehicle traveling faster than the speed of sound. Sonic booms generate a sound similar to an explosion or a clap of thunder. The sonic boom experienced will depend on weather conditions and other factors.

The public can view this launch from the Hawk's Nest on Azalea Lane off of Hwy 1 just over a mile south of Vandenberg AFB's main gate, which will open at 6 a.m. and close after the conclusion of the landing of the first stage.

This may only be visible near the coast... sun will already be well up so it will be harder to see.

Might be able to make out the faint smoke plume.

WATCH LIVE: RADARSAT CONSTELLATION MISSION

SpaceX is targeting Wednesday, June 12 for launch of the RADARSAT Constellation Mission from Space Launch Complex 4E (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. The primary launch window opens at 7:17 a.m. PDT, or 14:17 UTC, and closes at 7:30 a.m. PDT, or 14:30 UTC. The satellites will begin deployment approximately 54 minutes after launch. A backup launch window opens on Thursday, June 13 at 7:17 a.m. PDT, or 14:17 UTC, and closes at 7:30 a.m. PDT, or 14:30 UTC.

In our area in upper Moonridge, so many people got non-complicance notices, including us, and that was a first. Probably why so many piles are out there!

I'm surprised to see so many piles out for the Chipper Service. I guess so many are using the service this year they are behind. The piles we have out should have been picked up by last Tuesday. Still sitting there. Lots is in compliance though.

Just took a walk in my upper Moonridge BBC neighiborhood and if half of the properties are in compliance, I'd be surprised. Our ready date is 9/17 we are ready : )

Jelly, Thanks for posting the Stater's floor plan. Question though: Who buys bulk nuts??? Looks like they devoted a sizable area to it.
