Bullseye. It’s hard to get any more accurate.

1st/2nd stage camera views, including entry burn.

ASOG landing, but the ASOG camera view frozen from several seconds earlier.

Starlink deploy to be confirmed later due to blackout. View of first stage on deck at the end. Looked to be wobbling around a little.

Second stage camera view of Merlin-Vac after SECO.

SpaceX live webcast coverage ends now, but audio channel remains open. There will be no telemetry links to a ground station until approximately T+ 1 hour, 20 minutes. This is after Starlink cluster deployment.

Social media will provide updates.

Signed off.



Congratulations SpaceX!  And thank you to our NSF webcast team!

That's the third successful SpaceX launch of what I call a "trio"!

CSG-2, January 31, from Canaveral SLC-40;

NROL-87, February 2, from Vandenberg SLC-4E;

Starlink 4-7, February 3, from Kennedy LC-39A.
