The secret (lol) X-37B is about ready to come back to earth after being in orbit since April.

There's been plenty of speculation of what it's purpose was and what it got up to while up there, this was further compounded by several orbit changes the craft performed whilst in orbit.

Despite these orbital changes it seems to have been quite easy to track and was spotted not long after it was LAUNCHED.

Anyway, as per the title, it's coming back soon.


The U.S. Air Force said late Nov. 30 that its first X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle, in orbit since April, is slated to land Dec. 3-6, depending on technical and weather conditions.

“Preparations for the first landing of the X-37B are under way at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California,” according to a USAF statement. The 30th Space Wing will monitor the de-orbit and landing of the first X-37B, called OTV-1.

Vandenberg says the exact landing date and time will depend on the weather. But, they say they expect the vehicle to land at the base between Friday, December 3rd and Monday, December 6th.
