Giant Delta IV Heavy rocket launches from the Vandenberg AFB - video

Video of the heavy lift Delta IV Heavy taking off from the Vandenberg Air Force Base. The largest rocket ever to launch from the West Coast blasted off Thursday from Vandenberg Air Force Base, in California.

United Launch Alliance -- a 50-50 venture between Boeing and Lockheed Martin -- produced the Delta IV Heavy rocket, which is 235 feet tall, about 23 stories. Thursday's mission, carrying a classified defense satellite, was the second Delta IV launch in two months.
