It's a foggy morning at Vandenberg Air Force Base, and photographers gathered at a viewing site a few miles from the launch and landing pads report they cannot currently see the rocket.

Low visibility is not a weather constraint for a launch at Vandenberg, so the countdown is counting to tick toward liftoff at 7:17 a.m. PDT (10:17 a.m. EDT; 1417 GMT).

"Launch auto sequence has started." The countdown is starting the first steps to begin pumping propellants into the 229-foot-tall Falcon 9 at Vandenberg's Space Launch Complex 4-East.

RP-1 kerosene and liquid oxygen will be pumped into the Falcon 9 rocket. The liquid oxygen is chilled to near minus 340 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 206 degrees Celsius).

The Air Force's camera setup for this launch is intense. A couple of these can see right through @Marine_layer. #SpaceX #radarsat

The Falcon 9's second stage is now filled with RP-1 kerosene fuel. As propellants continue flowing into the first stage, liquid oxygen will begin loading into the second stage in a few minutes.

SpaceX's live webcast of today's launch is underway. It's a foggy morning at Vandenberg Air Force Base with all camera views of the Falcon 9 rocket currently obstructed by low visiblity. But weather conditions are "go" for liftoff with the Radarsat Constellation Mission at 7:17 a.m. PDT (10:17 a.m. EDT; 1417 GMT).

The strongback umbilical tower is being lowered to angle of 13 degrees from the Falcon 9 to clear the rocket for launch. The procedure begins with opening of cradles gripping the rocket at attach points, then hydraulics lower the tower into position for liftoff.

T-minus 3 minutes and counting. Retraction of the strongback is confirmed complete. First stage liquid oxygen loading is concluding at this time.
