Although the launch, which took place at 2:03 pm could be seen live via the website of United Launch Alliance, the details thereof are confidential.

A rocket of more than 70 meters high with a load capacity of 25 tons lifted off from Vandenberg Air Force Base in southern California (USA), which is believed to be a new spy satellite capable of taking high resolution photographs.

Although the launch, which took place at 2:03 pm could be seen live via the website of United Launch Alliance, the details thereof are confidential.

Experts, however, say the Delta IV rocket carrying a spy satellite trailer valued at 1,000 million dollars designed by the federal agency National Reconnaissance Office, responsible for the development of this type of orbital equipment.

The satellite, according to the Los Angeles Times, would be able to take a picture of the Earth’s surface from space and distinguish the make and model of a car hundreds of thousands of miles below.
