May 24, 2013 - A United Launch Alliance Delta 4 rocket blasts off from pad 37B at 7:27 p.m. EST carrying a geostationary communications satellite (WGS-5).

The Wideband Global SATCOM 5 spacecraft will beam high-data-rate, large-volume communications such as voice, video conferencing, intelligence files and weather information to troops across the Middle East and Southwest Asia, plus supply the bandwidth for routing telemetry and data streams from unmanned aerial drones.

Images taken from Port Canaveral - about 8.5 miles away.
