Jupiter OLS Images Back-to-Back Direct Strikes to Delta Launch Pad

Jupiter OLS Images Back-to-Back Direct Strikes to Delta Launch Pad


Last week, a Jupiter OLS system monitoring the Delta Launch Pad (SLC-37B) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station imaged two direct lightning strikes to the lightning protection system (LPS) towers within a 3 minute time window. The first strike attached to the western LPS tower top while the second strike attached to the eastern LPS tower top. SLS immediately alerted operators of the direct strikes. A Delta IV Heavy launch vehicle is currently being processed at SLC-37B.
