The countdown is progressing towards Thursday’s 8:37 a.m. launch of the classified NROL-61 payload on a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket from SLC-41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. Weather remains favorable, with only a 10% chance of violating weather constraint criteria. This will be the third NRO launch of the year, and the sixth launch for ULA.

ULA will begin providing coverage of the launch on their YouTube channel approximately 20 minutes prior to the scheduled launch time.
