Finn is chugging along with ASOG and looks to be on track for hopefully an early morning arrival on Thursday. Doug, with JRTI and the newest booster 1067, finally left their landing zone late last night. Too soon to say when they will arrive.

ASOG droneship and the Turksat booster are due to arrive at Port Canaveral on Thursday.

Believe the weather offshore to be poor. Should arrive sometime during the day, possibly early afternoon.

I get a slightly lower delta v to GEO: 1603 m/s

I agree with this value. The 1611 m/s value comes from performing all the plane change in the first burn.

Burn at 68931.0 km: theta1 = 27.12 deg, dv1 = 1204.3 m/s
Burn at 35786.0 km: theta2 =  0.00 deg, dv2 =  406.8 m/s
dv = 1611.1 m/s

Burn at 68931.0 km: theta1 = 25.66 deg, dv1 = 1187.3 m/s
Burn at 35786.0 km: theta2 =  1.46 deg, dv2 =  415.3 m/s
dv = 1602.6 m/s

Just a typical night here in Port Canaveral.

Finn Falgout and ASOG have returned with Falcon 9 B1067, following the #Turksat5B mission.

Finn Falgout and A Shortfall of Gravitas are inbound with B1067 bringing the Turksat 5-B recovery mission to an end. This was the third flight for this booster and the 99th landing of a Falcon 9.

Just a couple of fairing halves waiting for transport. I can assume they are from TurkSat but they're not on the usual transporters. Final destination unknown.

Here’s some more shots from our on water encounter today! Such an amazingly different perspective of the droneship and rocket. (Didn’t catch a single fish, but this was sooo worth it!)

From 12/23: the #SpaceX #Falcon9 booster B1067 in Port Canaveral, seen here with the 80% illuminated waning gibbous Moon rising behind it.

(I had hoped for a shot with the Moon higher, but low clouds obscured the Moon shortly after it was first visible on the horizon.)
