It's not a missile. It happened during the scheduled launch of a Delta-IV Heavy from Vandenberg. They scrubbed due to a hydrogen leak, but they wouldn't be firing missiles during the launch window.
The launch of the Delta IV Heavy has been canceled again. This is the fourth time in two weeks it has been scrubbed.
It was scheduled to launch from the Vandenberg Air Force at 5:59 p.m. Wednesday.
The United Launch Alliance says they will attempt the launch December 20th at 5:31 p.m.
A hydrogen leak in one engine halted the launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base Wednesday evening less than 10 minutes before liftoff.
Launches from the base northwest of Los Angeles can light up the sky for hundreds of miles.
The launch also was scrubbed Tuesday because of high winds and on Dec. 7 and Dec. 8 because of technical problems.
