Hi Ed:

Your post is interesting. I publish a newsletter and maintain a web site with information regarding Vandenberg AFB launches. Two people have contacted me regarding a possible "launch" at 0600 PDT (1300Z) on SEP 12.

I live in southern California and I was on the road at that time, but I did not see anything (I may have been facing the wrong direction or it may have been cloudy or foggy). Too bad I missed it (whatever "it" was).

Regards,

Brian Webb
