VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE — A flare lit up the sky early Thursday as the Air Force launched an unarmed intercontinental ballistic missile from Santa Barbara County amid a round of missile launches by North Korea.

The U.S. test missile launch was the second this month from Vandenberg Air Force Base, with the Minuteman 3 roaring out of a silo at 12:40 a.m., carrying a test re-entry vehicle.

The Global Strike Command said in a news release that the re-entry vehicle traveled 4,200 miles over the Pacific to the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands.
