X-37B landing - observation windows

Message posted by Griffon_314 on December 01, 2010 at 9:18:12 PST:

Air Force Space Command has released a statement on the preparations for the X-37B (OTV-1) landing at Vandendberg. They anticipate landing to occur "between Friday, December 3, and Monday, December 6, 2010".

The current orbit would provide landing windows at Vandenberg from approximately 5:50am to 6:10am PST each of those days. However, it's likely they will perform a minor boost to the orbit this week, so as to shift those landing windows into daylight hours (7am+).
