 I too, gave up after about an hour, Looks like I should've stuck around
outside for another 15 minutes. The launch was delayed at T-2 fro technical
reasons and finally took place at 2127.

Subject: [AZ-Observing] Vandenberg launch a no-show

No sign of the Vandenberg launch tonite.  I drove over to the Fish Point 
overlook on Shea Blvd. SW of Fountain Hills.  There is a low point on 
the horizon in the McDowells just under where Venus and the Moon were 
setting into a low cloud bank.  I watched from 8:25 until about 9:00 pm, 
but no launch plume, it was evidently scrubbed for some reason.  
However, there was a 4-hour launch window....
I checked Brian Webb's pages, but no current update.  www.spacearchive.info
