Atlas V Rocket Liftoff: Video



CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida -- The Atlas V 401 rocket with its secretive National Reconnaissance Office (NROL-38) lifted off at 8:28 a.m. today from Space Launch Complex 41 at the Cape Canaveral Air Force station in Florida.


 
The mission is the second of four planned launches by United Launch Alliance for the National Reconnaissance Office.




Low-lying clouds kept many spectators across the Space Coast from viewing the launch this morning.
