Preparations are underway for the launch of a cluster of communication satellites from Santa Barbara County.
SpaceX is set to launch a Falcon 9 rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base early Mondya morning. The rocket has a payload of 10 Iridum satellites.
They are part of a 66 satellite network being launched into low earth orbits to form a three billion dollar cutting edge communications network.
The launch is set for 5:37 a.m. Monday, so if weather conditions permit, it should be visible along much of the Central and South Coasts.
