Vandenberg Air Force Base is a United States Air Force installation tasked with testing ballistic missiles. It is ostensibly close enough to the fictional Ventura Air Force Base that Jaime's school class — and in particular Teddy — once believed an upward-bound rocket they witnessed on a school astronomy outing might have come from Vandenberg.

- In real life, Vandenberg is in Santa Barbara County, which borders Ventura County to the west, making Teddy's observation plausible.
