KODIAK — In what's become a familiar scene for observers at the Kodiak spaceport, a commercial rocket launch was scrubbed the day of a planned flight test over the weekend.

A private company's suborbital rocket test was all sound, no fury after a loud boom was heard around 2:25 p.m. under partly cloudy skies, but no rocket was visible from the spaceport's viewing area.

Alaska launch shrouded in secrecy
by Jeff Foust — July 27, 2018

WASHINGTON — A secretive California company carried out a suborbital launch from an Alaska spaceport July 20, but a week after the event few details about the event are clear, including its outcome.

Astra Space carried out a launch at 6 p.m. Eastern July 20 of its "Rocket 1" vehicle from Pacific Spaceport Complex – Alaska on Kodiak Island, Alaska. Foggy conditions made it difficult to observe the launch, according to one local reporter covering the event.
...
In a statement provided by the FAA July 24 in response to a SpaceNews inquiry, it confirmed that the launch took place but that a "mishap" of some kind occurred.

"The Astra Space, Inc. launch from the Pacific Spaceport Complex Alaska at Kodiak Island on Friday, July 20 experienced a mishap," the FAA stated. "It was an FAA-licensed launch, and the agency is reviewing the event."

Pacific Spaceport Complex – Alaska, formerly known as the Kodiak Launch Complex, is operated by Alaska Aerospace Corporation. Craig Campbell, president and chief executive of Alaska Aerospace, told SpaceNews July 27 that a nondisclosure agreement with the customer limited what he could discuss.

"Our customer has requested we not discuss their operations with the press," he said. "I can confirm that a launch from the Pacific Spaceport Complex – Alaska occurred on Friday, July 20th and that the customer is very pleased with the outcome of the launch."

Campbell made no mention of a mishap or other incident taking place during the launch. "While a post-launch team is reviewing the results of the launch, I can state that there was no material damage to our facilities as a result of this launch," he said. "We look forward to working with this customer to support their next launch from Alaska."

I infer from the FAA's 'mishap' statement that the Astra Rocket 1 flight ended at fairly low altitude and did not reach space (otherwise it would be reported as 'underperformance' at worst).
