Support your local planetarium! (COVID-panic and forward: Now more than ever.) My current avatar is saying "i wants to go uppies!" Yes, there are God-given rights. Do you wish to gainsay the Declaration of Independence?

Cross-post:
0982-EX-ST-2023  Mission 1930 Starlink Group 5-8
NET June from Vandy [Jun 4]
ASDS North  North  29  36  27   West  116  43  41
Launch NET early July, but could be as early as June 30?  There would be back-to-back OCISLY first stage landings.

SDA T&TL Tranche-0B would take precedence, if ready for launch (currently scheduled for "later this summer," which approximately equals Q3.)

Edit June 15: Starlink 5-7 launch changes from NET June 21 to June 22.

Assuming nine day SLC-4E and OCISLY turnarounds, launch would be NET July 1, and likely in the first days of the month.
