It is amazing the sheer ridiculous speculation that is associated with ignorance. We, (USAF/DOD) have been using these rockets for well over 20 years, and has been the "rented mule" of the military to get critical national defense equipment into space. The "object(s)" they were avoiding was most likely another satellite/rocket within the same orbital target range as the deployment windows on these missions require an astute "ballet" of comple remote operations from the ground.

Regarding the post on the night vs. daytime photos, again use your nugget, this was a series of 6 total launches. The daytime was @ Vandenburg AFB, CA the night time was @ Cape Canaveral, FL. OR....Just maybe it's because it's the escape space station our "elite" are going to be in when the comet hits us in Oct, 2011!!! Hi, welcome to Kaw-fee Tawlk, discuss....

Ahhh good catch there. A little sloppy on my part not noticing the different launch locations. Upon making this thread I was unaware that this was part of a series of launches. Still pretty interesting none the less.

No worries brother. Of all the posts, you actually caught a logical discrepancy. I didn't mean to sound harsh, but when stuff is common knowledge, but people fail to research even to the surface level, their input means nil. True questioning and striving for knowledge is the path I'll always support.

In response to both of you, I actually just noticed that the picture of it on this link has it taking off at nightwww.space.com.... While CNN's video shows it taking off clearly during the light of day. Is it some effect of the brightness of the rocket blast on the camera? A little confused.

WOW ... not only does your link show a night launch, but it's the one that occurred in November ... not today (obviously from a previous launch)

no sarcasm interjected ... my apology if you found some.
i was about to jump all over the 'fake' possibility as mentioned by others ... but, i do read (not just look) and it did state ... Nov 21 launch date.
i only just read this page of posts and noticed another pointed out the error ... didn't mean to repeat the mssg but i hadn't seen it when i posted my reply.
no offense intended but i will accept your apology for ASSUMING that i'm a guy ... wrong again.

No prob.



I actually wasn't assuming any sex neither with my statement. Whether male or female I would've said "smart guy". just a term I like to use loosely.

ok so your vocabulary is less than stellar (same here) but last i checked 'smart gal' or
'smarty pants' or even 'smart chic' is just as effective and actually applies.
here at ATS, some call it ... truth.

Anywho, we're getting of topic here. Anyone have anymore ideas or thoughts on this launch?

My firs thought was 'Whats up with all the launches lately?' Is it just me, or is there a marked increase..

We have the california anomoly/vandenberg shot, that fancy new bird the AF has flown twice, etc etc.

My 'something's up' radar is tingling. It'd be interesting to know where this one shows up on radar (if it is a KH-11)

My gut tells me she'll be providing imagery of Iran or NK. The plot thickens :/

That looks just like Dr Evils'... rocket. I wonder if it's equipped with lazer beams.


I think this has to really do with the patriot act somehow or another, Every time there is more added to the patriot act there is a another spy sat going up , but for who ? Why all the spy sats anyway? Seems like they launch one every 3 months now. Of course there was all the analog bandwidth frequencies reallocated by the FCC. Some went to Cell companies and some freq went to emergency freq, so I guess you take the rest of the frequencies and build a new spy satellite just because you can.

if you read this link regarding this rocket there's something interesting in this article

www.google.com...

The text goes as below which seems interesting :-

"The launch was pushed back two minutes to avoid an object in space that could have been in the path of the rocket, said Michael J. Rein, a ULA spokesman"

why don't they tell what object...

Its fairly obvious now that everything/everyone is being watched. This is perfect example. I'm guessing at this stage they can probably see through buildings. This probably has much better versions of the airport scanners.

paranoid or what?

wonder what they are so scared of ?

Its strange how you can spend all time looking for something and there it is right in front of your eyes the whole goddam time. Bummer isn't it.

Night Launch / Day Launch ??? File footage.

Cheaper than sending someone out to film a routine launch.

Germany only had the V2 and some buzz bombs.

Go figure.

Yeah a little strange, but at the same time I've heard there is a sea of small objects just floating in orbit around us, i.e. destroyed satellites etc. So there's no way to really know. They could be holding out on us, or just not know what exactly the item is. Either way, I like to leans towards the first. Good observation.

Hahaha. Yeah. Maybe it's about listening on that new 4G network I've been hearing about.
Naw, really though, that patriot act opened up a whole can of worms, and they're doing whatever they want.....yay.
