Video of the Delta IV Heavy out of Vandenberg

On Jan 16, my son I watched the first launch of a Delta-IV Heavy from Vandenberg. I blogged about it. Here is the video I shot of the launch. We are off base at a public-viewing area. My video is hand-held…sorry for the shakes.

If you listen closely, near the end of the video, you can hear my four year-old saying,
“Wow, that rocket went so high, I can't even see it...COOL!”
For those that want to instill a love of space and rockets in a new generation of pioneers, there is nothing better than letting them experience space – launches are a great way to do that.


  1. It's really great to have seen one of those launches, I haven't seen one in my lifetime and it will be a wonderful experience for my kid some day to watch one. It is as your son had said, cool!!Brad Fallon

  2. I hope you don't mind but I wrote an article about your site at
