Share this article: The Delta IV rocket on the launch pad.

About four minutes before launch, the countdown was put on hold and systems were in the process of being re-checked.

Friday's takeoff will occur at California's Vandenberg Air Force Base.

"We are ready and eager to take on this Delta launch", said Col. Greg Wood, 30th Space Wing vice commander, in a base news release.

The original launch, scheduled for Wednesday, was pushed to Thursday due to high winds. Officials are hopeful the weather will cooperate this time.

ULA was expecting to launch at 1:55 p.m., but the anomalies kept pushing the rocket launch back. The forecast shows a 90 percent chance of favorable weather conditions for launch. The launch will be broadcast live on the ULA website as well as on YouTube. This latest mission patch is part of a long tradition of just plainly weird patches that the NRO issues for each classified launch. The government hasn't confirmed whether the top-secret satellite did indeed fall out of orbit and reenter Earth's atmosphere.

SpaceX claimed its rocket performed as expected, implying the blame for the Zuma mission lay elsewhere.
