The largest rocket ever to be launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base had a succesful lift-off Wednesday.
 
The Delta IV Heavy rocket was launched with a $1 billion spy satellite for the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) “in support of national defense,” according to aerospace engineering firm United Launch Alliance (ULA).


heard from 50 miles away, the Delta IV Heavy was
launched at 11:03 A.M. Some may have mistaken it for
an earthquake. The National Reconnaissance Office
launch of NROL-65 is expected to deploy the last KH-11
reconnaissance satellite, launch occurred at 11:03 local time
Wednesday, 8-28-2013.

Once it reaches orbit in about two days, the classified payload is expected
to be able to distinguish details back on Earth as minute as the make and
model of an automobile

Delta IV Heavy to Launch NROL-65, launched from Slick 6 aka SLC-6
at Vandenberg AFB. Slick 6 is officially known as SLC-6 at Vandenberg AFB.

Eagles and snakes in the depiction, it will be interesting to learn more.



'Sheachadadh': to deliver.
"Sheachadadh do rudai" translates from Gaelic as
"deliver your stuff". 

The tattoo on the Eagle's arm/wing reads "Buttercup".

There may be a suprise payload.
