GOES-S AtlasV by United Launch Alliance

At 5:02 pm (ET) on Thursday, March 1, 2018, United Launch Alliance successfully launched the #GOESS weather satellite atop an #AtlasV rocket for NASA and NOAA. 

This is the full moon rising on the horizon, seen between the flag and the countdown clock at the Press Site at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. The time on the clock indicates that we are 1 hour 29-minutes after the launch, although the clock is showing the NASA TV rebroadcast of the pre-launch briefing.
