Vandenberg Launch set for January 10 at 1PM

As the Delta 4 rocket was nearing orbit, the United Launch Alliance ended its coverage and the rest of the flight was carried out under the radar.

It continued: "We are scrubbed for the day".

The scheduled ULA launch comes less than a week after SpaceX launched a mysterious Zuma payload for the United States government and allegedly failed to deliver it to orbit.

Last month, a SpaceX rocket launch from Vandenburg during the sunset created a shimmering streak across the sky. It is also the 27 launch for the NRO. See all the pictures here. Launch is planned for January 12 at 1pmPST.

Launch time will once again be 4 p.m. ET.

ULA said: "The ULA #DeltaIV #NROL47" launch for the @NatReconOfc was scrubbed today due to an issue with a ground system valve.

Since its introduction in October 2015, this has led to nine billion fewer plastic bags being used, according to the government. The Government is also investigating introducing a "takeaway tax" on single-use plastic items, such as food containers.

There's an 80 percent chance of favorable weather for the Friday afternoon launch, United Launch Alliance said on Twitter.

The new time - 9pm GMT, Friday, January 12 - will hopefully be when the rocket takes off.

With operational launch pads on both coasts-Space Launch Complex-37 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla., and Space Launch Complex-6 at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. -every Delta IV configuration is available to service the requirements of current and future satellite programs. Spike Aerospace is hoping to do just that ahead of rivals NASA and Virgin Airlines. The NRO publicized the launch with generic tweets, saying the mission was the first of two planned by the agency this year. As a classified mission, information about the satellite and its orbit is limited.

However, its overarching aim is to provide overhead intelligence for national security.

The Delta IV launch system is available in five configurations: the Delta IV Medium (Delta IV M), three variants of the Delta IV Medium-Plus (Delta IV M+), and the Delta IV Heavy (Delta IV H).
