Just observed a launch out of Vandenburg headed south.  Viewed from Huntington
Beach, approximately 150 miles east of Vandenburg.  Arrived on roof of McDonnell
Douglas building (we build the payload fairings) at 18:05:52 UTC and smoke trail
was already about 10 degrees above the horizon, estimate launch was more than 30
seconds earlier.  All appeared nominal.
