VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. (AP) -- A rocket carrying a secret payload for the U.S. government has successfully launched from the central California coast.
The Atlas V rocket lit up the night sky at about 11:15 p.m. Thursday, lifting off from Vandenberg Air Force Base toward low-Earth orbit.
The 19-story-tall rocket carried a payload for the National Reconnaissance Office, which operates the nation's system of intelligence-gathering satellites. The agency has not released any details about the payload.
