SpaceX is targeting Monday, October 3 for a Falcon 9 launch of 52 Starlink satellites to low-Earth orbit from Space Launch Complex 4E (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Space Force Base in California. The instantaneous launch window is at 4:56 p.m. PT (23:56 UTC), and a backup opportunity is available on Tuesday, October 4 at 4:35 p.m. PT (23:35 UTC).

The first stage booster supporting this mission previously launched NROL-87, NROL-85, SARah-1, and one Starlink mission. Following stage separation, the first stage will land on the Of Course I Still Love You droneship, which will be stationed in the Pacific Ocean.

A live webcast of this mission will begin about five minutes prior to liftoff.

SpaceX website says launch time is 23:56 UTC.  CelesTrak gives 23:53:40 UTC.

Who is correct?

(1) The launch vehicle company is most likely correct.
(2) Celestrak predictions are based on SpaceX-provided data. Just as likely to be correct.
(3) Don't miss the earlier time

Have the cameras ready at 23:53:40. Something might happen.
