I called the news media liason officer at Vandenberg AFB about two hours
ago. The next Iridium launch is Saturday NOV 8 at 17:34 PST (NOV 9 at 01:34
UTC).

This is an evening twilight launch. It should be interesting with the
sunset backlighting.

With regards to the Delta II Launch Hotline: Sometimes it's very
up-to-date, and sometimes it's days or weeks out of date. The best source
of launch info is a live person at Vandenberg AFB Public Affairs.
