The rocket will carry a National Reconnaissance Office spy satellite, with the mission dubbed NROL-47.
The launch, which is slated to be the first of 2018 from VAFB, was delayed several times on Thursday before ultimately getting called off around 4:45 p.m., almost four hours after the launch window first opened at 1 p.m.
The original launch date was Wednesday, but was pushed back until Thursday due to weather. "Latest weather briefing shows an 80% chance of favorable weather". The Delta IV rocket was supposed to take off today at 4PM ET, but ULA said it's working on a technical issue that's delaying the launch.
The vehicle will launch the classified NROL-47 payload for the U.S. National Reconnaissance Office. It will be the 27th NRO launch by United Launch Alliance, which is a Colorado-based aerospace partnership between Lockheed Martin and Boeing.
