ULA did a live Periscope feed of the roll-out: https://www.periscope.tv/w/1kvKpZVaOomJE

Looks like this'll be Andrea's second launch commentary.

For those living on the old continent, the launch window is 14:30-15:14 UTC today, so about an hour from now.

Just wondering, what determines the color of the first stage of the Atlas V? Usually it's copper but sometimes it's white?

The first stage of the Atlas V is always orange-coppery. It's the colour of the insulation, because the tanks hold very cold liquid oxygen.

The conversion coating process can produce slight differences in color, but they all get it.

At around L-19 minutes, the T-4 minute hold should initiate for 15 minutes.
