This morning shortly after 10:30am PDT the Mobile Service Tower was rolled away from the Atlas V rocket carrying the NROL-36 spy satellite and was locked into its launch position. Since then the countdown clock has been running smoothly getting the rocket prepared for the terminal countdown.
The picture to the left was taken in the morning sea mists after the MST had been rolled back. By now the mists should have burnt off and the sky should be clear for a beautiful launch.
Currently the rocket booster and the second Centaur stage are being fuelled and the engineers are making some final checks of the systems. The countdown will continue until T-4 minutes when there will be a scheduled hold. When the hold is complete at 2:35pm the clock will restart and count-down to T-0 at 2:39 when the engines will fire up and the rocket will blast off.
