Launch viewing party at Providence Landing Park

VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- The 30th Space Wing and NASA are scheduled to host a launch viewing party at Providence Landing Park at 699 Mercury Avenue in Lompoc Monday at 8:30 a.m.

This event is in preparation for the launch of a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket carrying a NASA payload from Space Launch Complex-3 here between 10:02 and 10:50 a.m.

"We encourage locals to come on out, have some fun, and see a rocket launch," said Larry Hill, 30th Space Wing's Community Relations chief. "This is our chance to give back to the community for their support."

Mobility, the rock band from United States Air Force Band of the Golden West, is scheduled to perform at 8:30 a.m.

Representatives from NASA, U.S. Geological Survey and 30th Space Wing will be available to answer questions about the payload and the launch.

All interested parties are asked to carpool, as limited parking is only available at Calvary Baptist Church in Lompoc.

Admission is free for this event.
