Vandenberg Air Force Base is designated as a closed installation. Access to the base for launch viewing is limited to those with base access.

Yes but you don't need to be on base to watch. In fact the best view is from about 30 miles south of the base. And have lived on a hill over looking the base for about 12 years you don't want to be any closer than about 3 miles from the launch.

Years ago I was in the press corps for the initial launch of what was then called the Lockheed Launch Vehicle (LLV-1) from the converted SLC-6. I believe they are now called Athena. Felt the engines start before we heard them. Design flaw in the hydraulics caused a destructive abort shortly after launch. Got pics someplace.

Most Vandenberg night launches are visible from my front yard in Visalia, Used to be able to view from the backyard, but the neighbors' trees are too tall now. Was out front from 00:30 to 01:00, no go. Try again Friday night/Saturday morning.

Beg to differ, M'Lady.
Winning may be fleeting, but it is not futile.
It has its rewards.
Have a pleasant weekend.
