Launch attempt 9/17/2016

It’s 3:10 am and we just pushed X-Calibur out of the hangar. The wind conditions are looking excellent today. If the rain stays away, we may launch!

4:45am: everything is still looking good. X-Calibur is on the runway.

X-Calibur is on the runway at the upper left side of the image. The GSFC BETTII experiment (an IR interferometer) can be seen in front doing pointing tests.
