DENVER (AP) – A missile carrying a Colorado experiment has been launched from California.

The missile launched on Monday is carrying the Operational Land Imager built by Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. in Boulder, along with other experiments.

The satellite will support monitoring of coastal waters and detect previously hard to see cirrus clouds that could affect monitoring of the Earth’s surface.
