ULA Successfully Launches The WGS 8 Satellite

ULA Successfully Launches The WGS 8 Satellite From Cape Canaveral, Florida. 

On December 7, 2016 United Launch Alliance (ULA) successfully launched the WGS 8 satellite into orbit from Space Launch Complex 37 at the Cape Canaveral, Florida spaceport. 

For this launch I decided to go to the Robert Kelly Slater statue in Cocoa Beach as the 45th space wing and ULA did not allow any media to view/photograph the launch from the ITL citing safety concerns. The ITL causeway is the closest area non essential personnel can get during a launch, which is roughly 2.5 miles away from the launch pad.

Below you can view the full resolution 360° panoramic image of the Delta IV rocket streaking across the night sky in the background and the Kelly Slater statue in the foreground as cars drive by.

This was the 11th launch this year for United Launch Alliance and the 114th successful launch for the company since being formed ten years ago in December 2006.
