If you don't care for the X-37 but cares for the solar sail, here's the Planetary Society's mission control page: http://sail.planetary.org/missioncontrol  ;)

Any weather updates posted yet for today?  Last I heard, it was 60% likelihood of a weather scrub for today, 70% for tomorrow.  Any relaxation of those discouraging numbers now that the day has dawned?

In case you're like me, flailing about in vain for a video link, don't look to NASA TV, as they aren't covering this launch. But ULA will be, at the following link, once coverage is active.

Always love watching the only remaining operational space plane launching.  Also excited about the light sail experiment, hope it is successful!
