Falcon 9 launch scheduled


Team Vandenberg is scheduled to support the launch of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying the RADARSAT Constellation Mission from Space Launch Complex-4 the week of June 10, 2019.

The roadblock normally established at 13th Street on Ocean Avenue will be relocated to Floradale Avenue and Ocean Avenue. A secondary roadblock will also be established at Floradale Avenue and Central Avenue. Additional temporary traffic control measures may be implemented on local roadways to safely expedite expected traffic.

Personnel from Vandenberg AFB have partnered with the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office and the Lompoc Police Department in this effort to ensure public safety during the launch. 

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.

Information regarding the confirmed date and time of the upcoming launch is forthcoming.

For questions regarding the launch or the public viewing location, please contact 30th Space Wing Public Affairs at (805) 606-3595.
