SpaceX is targeting Thursday, July 7 for a Falcon 9 launch of 53 Starlink satellites to low-Earth orbit from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. The instantaneous launch window is at 9:11 a.m. ET (13:11 UTC), and a backup opportunity is available on Friday, July 8 at 8:49 a.m. ET (12:49 UTC).


The first stage booster (B1058.13) supporting this mission previously launched Crew Demo-2, ANASIS-II, CRS-21, Transporter-1, Transporter-3, and seven Starlink missions. Following stage separation, Falcon 9’s first stage will return to Earth and land on the Just Read the Instructions droneship stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.


A live webcast of this mission will begin about 10 minutes prior to liftoff.

[email protected] reports their preferred launch time for #Starlink Group 4-21 is 2020-07-07 at 14:30:00 UTC. Their alternative is at 13:11:00 UTC. CelesTrak now has pre-launch SupTLEs for both options: https://celestrak.org/NORAD/elements/supplemental/. That way I won't have to stay up past my bedtime!

Good morning from the Kennedy Space Center. Here's a glance across the spaceport toward SLC-40, where SpaceX plans to launch a Falcon 9 rocket later today on the Starlink 4-21 mission.
