In the Heat of the Night


Click the arrow to watch the Atlas AEHF3 launch on YouTube.

It was delayed over an hour due to weather concerns, but at 4:10 AM EDT this morning an Atlas V launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station's Launch Complex 41 with an Advanced Extreme High Frequency (AEHF) satellite built by Lockheed Martin.

Todd Halvorson of Florida Today reports:

The 197-foot-tall United Launch Alliance rocket leap off its launch pad at 4:10 a.m. -- 66 minutes behind schedule. Launch managers had to wait for cumulus clouds to clear the area and upper-level winds to die down.
