Overnight rocket launch seen in Valley
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A nighttime rocket launch at Vandenberg Air Force Base was visible in the Central Valley on Friday.
A few Facebook fans on the ABC30 page said they thought they saw something strange in the sky on Friday morning, and they were right.
A Delta II rocket carrying a NASA weather satellite blasted off shortly before 3 a.m.
The satellite will give meteorologists and scientists never before seen views of storms swirling around the world.
