On Feb. 26 at 4:26 PT a Minotaur I launch vehicle will lift off from Space Launch Complex 8 at Vandenberg AFB. It will be carrying the National
Reconnaissance Office's NROL-66 payload into orbit. The Minotaur I uses solid fuel rocket motors which produce a thick white smoke trail and the
launch should be visible for hundreds of miles.
