On Wednesday, July 15, 2020 in the state of Virginia, at the Pad 0B military launch site Wallops Island, the U.S. Space Force and the U.S. National Reconnaissance Office deployed its latest spy satellite into low orbit with a Northrop Grumman Minotaur IV rocket, also available in an intercontinental ballistic missile version for the U.S. military. The launch was delayed by about 20 minutes due to the presence of a ship in the exclusion zone. Named NROL-129, the mission of this spy imaging satellite remains unknown.
