The official Notices to Airmen, or NOTAMs, released to the public this week to establish clear warning zones around the rocket's flight path indicate the booster is headed southwestward from Vandenberg Air Force Base on its trek downrange.
Typical Vandenberg launches head southward toward polar orbits or slightly southeastward on so-called "coast-hugger" ascents, depending on the payload's desired orbit.
In the upcoming launch, however, the Delta 4 rocket will take a distinct trajectory out over the Pacific Ocean that would result in delivering its classified satellite cargo into a retrograde orbit flying against Earth's natural rotation
Aquila, the Eagle, is surrounded by no fewer than nine other constellations that touch its borders. Most prominent are Sagitta that bounds most of its northern flank and Sagittarius its southern. Aquarius is to its east and Serpens Cauda to the west. Aquila is at its most prominent to northern hemisphere observers during midsummer months when its brightest star, Altair forms the southernmost corner of the Summer Triangle with Deneb in Cygnus and Vega in Lyra. The Milky Way is rich in this area of the sky, running diagonally through Aquila. h2g2.com...
