From a technical standpoint, it's also the largest Atlas to fly to date, a combination of the 551 and the fairing extension taking it up to 206 feet.

Centaur LOX into topping... and now at flight level.

Low-level wind shear is currently red for the beginning of the window, but that's why many balloons are released throughout the count.
