Hold was at T-33 seconds due to ship in the range. Will be trying again tomorrow.

What cruise ship fouled the range?

This never happened on the "Love Boat." 🚢



Perhaps three SpaceX launches in three days?
CSG-2 January 31.
Starlink 4-7 February 1.
NROL-87 February 2.

Looks like Harmony of the Seas or Mardi Gras, going by Marinetraffic

Harmony of the Seas.

Royal Caribbean can probably expect a nice fine and the captain probably fired. No way since they were departing the Port would they not know of the no go zone. It would be like departing DCA and flying straight through P-56 and then go, " What you mean there was a prohibited area?". Can't claim ignorance here......

A gross failure of seamanship from a Captain responsible for a large number of passengers. NOTAMS next to an active set of launch sites are far from unexpected. Really, this is unacceptable - it isn't like a sailing vessel with bad winds or an engine failure or some other issue.

nonsense.   The captain will not be fired. 

Also, the port pilot is not blameless.  He is the one navigating.

Here's the path the ship took. Two paths are show, one from yesterday and the current path. You can see where the ship turned south at about T-20 minutes.

Whatever happened to innocence until found guilty in a court of law. Lets just wait for the details of the case please.

We talk of what…. 7000 to 9000 people in the no go zone. That must be some kind of record.

Anyone readily able to overlay the restricted zone onto this image?

Looks like maybe USCG got through to them and they were trying to exit, just couldn't in time.

Per my book Harmony of the Seas has a crew of 2394 and a capacity of 6687 paying passengers. Business is bad these days?

5000 would mean less than half capacity

It would definitely beat the record of 4 sleeping shrimpers!

Tomorrow on the webcast we'll need John Insprucker as a good luck for this flight... Duh... :-\
