These are V1.5 Starlinks with laser inter-satellite links, which are needed for high latitudes & mid ocean coverage

Looks like booster recovery is drawing near as a big ol' crane is being assembled at Port of Long Beach. Also, OCISLY has left the building.

West Coast fairing recovery ship NRC Quest and ASDS support ship Adele Elise departed from Long Beach overnight.

They are heading south towards the Starlink 2-1 landing zone.

Here's something strange.  NGA notices NAVAREA XII 485/21 and HYDROPAC 2564/21 are for this launch (see https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=53965.msg2288508#msg2288508) for September 14 through 16 (UTC dates).

I've received these two notices today saying Operations Completed.

(Emphasis added.)

I think the NGA considered the wrong notices as Operations Completed.

A Ground-based Interceptor missile, an element of the nation’s Ground-based Midcourse Defense system, was launched from North Vandenberg today at 10:30 a.m. Pacific Time by Space Launch Delta 30 officials, the U.S. Missile Defense Agency, and U.S. Northern Command.

Is there any launch weather forecast for this mission?

The 30th Space Wing never posted the weather forecasts on their website and only posted them a few times on their social media. I doubt things changed when they became Space Launch Delta 30, se the best we can do is to periodically check their Twitter and Facebook pages. Even tho it is safe to guess that the POV is <10% like for most launches at Vandenberg

As expected, the NGA has issued new notices for the ones that were canceled in error.  As before, for this launch, both notices are Rocket Launching even though the second one should be Space Debris.

Question:

Absent a link to follow from a thread like this one, how does one find the live SpaceX launch webcast on Youtube? These days when one searches for a SpaceX live mission broadcast it seems like a hundred copycat Youtube streams pop up first, but the authentic SpaceX broadcast is nowhere to be found.

Even if you go to the official SpaceX channel shortly before a launch, the current day Mission Livestream never seems to be around. I inevitably have to pop into the thread here to find the link that is kindly provided, in order to get to the video.

So am I just stupid (probably), and can someone share the easiest way to find the SpaceX livestreams on launch day?

Thanks👍

The SpaceX website is a pretty reliable way to find the mission broadcast. Unfortunately tonight’s still isn’t available yet, normally they’re up a bit sooner…

Thanks. Never knew that. I always just go straight to Youtube and then end up spending frustrating minutes typing in ever more specific search terms, all the while worrying that I’ve missed the final countdown.

Especially when watching on a Smart TV with the Youtube app.

We're under an hour to launch, and still no video link, or link for the launch net audio.  Kinda odd...
