God bless the NRO and their contractors.

They are staying on schedule, appear to be having mission success, and are delivering space-based capability to the United States and its allies.

If all goes well, NROL-66 will fly from Vandenberg on Saturday, 5 Feb, launch time TBA.

What do we know all about this?  A VAFB launch suggests one thing—a polar or highly inclined orbit.  A much smaller booster suggests a non-traditional (experimental) type of payload.
