This highly unusual cloud formation was likely formed from the exhaust of a rocket launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in Southern California roughly an hour before this capture. The photo was taken from a mountain ridge near Tucson, AZ.

Everybody identifies Kennedy Space Center and Johnson Space Center as the epicenters of America’s now defunct Space Shuttle Program. What most people don’t know is that the Shuttle almost had a second home at Vandenberg Air Force Base on the south central coast of California.

nasa The 3rd time was a charm for @NOAA’s Joint Polar Satellite System-1 (JPSS-1)! It lifted off on a @Ulalaunch Delta II rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, at 4:47 a.m. EST on Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017. Approximately 63 minutes after launch, the solar arrays on JPSS-1 deployed and the spacecraft was operating on its own power and was on its own orbit.  JPSS-1 is equipped with five instruments, each of which is significantly upgraded from the instruments on NOAA’s previous…

NOAA's new polar satellite, JPSS-1, launched at 1:47 am PST on 11-18-17 from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, this morning. (ULA) Will be able to predict the weather 3-7 days in advance which will be tremendously helpful after our horrific year of devastating hurricanes, forest fires,and typhoons!AMAZING!!👍👍

Minuteman III test launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base

Minuteman III test launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base

After more than 22 months, the US Air Force's secret space plane is expected to land in California on Tuesday at Vandenberg Air Force Base. This will mark the completion of the third test flight of the X-37B which, like the Space Shuttle, is a reusable space plane that takes off like a rocket but lands like an aircraft. Unlike the Space Shuttle, the X-37B is quite a mystery.

What Does the US Military's New Space Plane Really Do
