Watch for launch of ICESat today on the west coast at 4:45 PM west coast time. Could be visible to the west of LA a couple minutes later over the Pacific.
It will be launched almost due south from Vandenburg AFB.

There were a couple little earthquakes in LA today. Must've heard I was coming to town.
