Sorry if already posted, I did a search and don't see it. Tonight's launch should be visible along east coast, weather permitting. Any UFO reports tonight can be attributed to this.

Great, now if I see a ufo, it will automatically be a satellite. XD

NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Viriginia?

When did NASA build a launch facility in VA?

This is curious.

The ORS-3 mission, which is run by the U.S military's Operationally Responsive Space Office

Hmmm the military's Operationally Responsive Space Office eh ... I wonder what they're operationally responding to

A little more information on the ORS-3 launch.

umm ok... What if I see the black triangle silently floating 300 feet off the ground again shinning bright lights in my face? Would that be a satellite?



Thanks for the literal heads up though.

Well not as impressive as it sounds...

One rocket with one major satellite and 29 small shoe box sized ones...

Still cool, just thought they were launching 30 rockets, which seemed impractical and silly, after reading makes much more sense.

I was just stating the obvious. If someone wasn't aware of tonight's launch and started seeing multiple lights in the sky, that could be the reason. As to your black triangle floating 300 ft. off the ground, it would probably be swamp gas or ball lightening

Because this is a US Air Force launch (not NASA), one has to wonder why they need nearly 30 satellites all at once.

It is possible that these satellites are required to feed signals to all the drones they plan on having in the sky. If the drones are looking for their signal from up above, versus down below, then the signal cannot be jammed or messed with from the ground.

Bummer for all of us.

So interesting that they release this info to the press, and nowhere does it state WHY.

That is the most intelligent post so far imo.

It is very suspicious to me. It reminds me of that report ATS did some years back on Spacecast2020 through the FIOA.

Is this the next step in completing the drone systems? Like a futuristic Sci-fi movie this cannot end well for civilians. What do we have in the number of thirty which needs monitoring?

They are just trying to one -up the high school kids who were sending up 29 Micro satellites today. one upsmanship

Yes...yes it would.

In fact, if you see a black triangle (this is the new colour and shape of all Earth satellites) whether it lands and creatures get out and have a look around, these are all perfectly normal satellites..understand?!

Now, get back to work skivvy.

Wallops was Established in 1945, it's one of the oldest launch sites in the world, and is located on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. There's been over 16,000 launches from the rocket testing range since its founding in 1945.

It's operated by Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, primarily as a rocket launch site to support science and exploration missions for N.A.S.A.

Yes. It's been around for ages. If one pays more than a passing attention to space and atmospheric research then one would have heard of it.

This is where they have launched sounding rockets to study the atmosphere for a long time.

BTW: Wallops has been responsible of plenty of UFO sightings due to the sounding rockets releasing barium and strontium in the upper atmosphere. And "glowing in an "unearthly way" in the presence of high energy particles from the Sun.

Watch the video below to see what I mean when it reaches apogee and releases the experiment package.

1945.
en.wikipedia.org...
Ever hear of the father of American rocketry? Robert Goddard? No? Guess your elementary school's science teacher wasn't very good. Or you didn't pay attention to them.



This is curious.


No it's not.

Its one of many American spaceports.


NASA and the Air Force are not the only ones who use it. There is a commercial facility there as well.

Orbital Sciences (a private company like Space-X) launches their Antares rocket from there as well.

From this article:www.space.com...


"Ultimately, the ORS-3 is about enabling the warfighter to perform his or her mission efficiently and effectively," ORS-3 mission manager Jeff Welsh, of the Space and Missile Systems Center at Los Angeles Air Force Base, told reporters on Nov. 14. "We support that critical effort through rapid response and reduced-cost space operations."


Drones certainly fit in this category.


Providing essential situational awareness for the warfighter, Predators continue to excel in combat missions focusing on Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR), targeting, forward air control, laser designation, weapons delivery, and bomb damage assessment.

Read between the lines. The Air Force doesn't launch things that have nothing to do with warfare. That's NASA's job.

Actually the Air Force and Navy both have launched things that have nothing to do with warfare in the current sense but rather to test out technologies.

One prominent example was the Clementine lunar probe.

That may be (although, IMOHO, any launches done by the military would ultimately have to do with how technology would help them do their job better), but by the Air Force spokesperson's own admission, this particular launch is to help warfighters be more efficient and effective. I don't see how this is not related to war operations.

They are shoebox sized nukes, to be used against the perceived threat of ison(spacecraft).

Come on, we've been over this how many times?
