B1061 is inbound to Port Canaveral for 3pm ET on JRTI.

Just waiting for ASOG to be repositioned in port after B1060 was unloaded earlier.

The video in this post seems to show one of the four USA sats tumbling:

What Falcon 9 debris would be so bright?

None that is specifically falcon 9. The fairing halves were obv. Recovered and the upper stage went on to another inclination to drop the globalstar sat. No other piece of F9 is supposed to come off at that point. So it's a piece of the deployment menchanism, maybe the 4 sats were wrapped up in a big box on top of the rideshare dispenser (maybe for secrecy reasons during integration?), So they could be deployed as one bundle and then separated out of that box.

Falcon 9 B1061 returns to Cape Canaveral today as Falcon 9 B1060 is being processed on the dock after its return yesterday. The two boosters launched the Globalstar FM15 satellite and 53 Starlink satellites in recent days.

Double Trouble

B1061 arrived onboard Just Read the Instructions completing the Globalstar-2 mission. Photo bombing is B1060, which arrived yesterday and is almost ready for transport.

Hysterical.  SpaceX needs a control tower for ground traffic..  Airline-like operations indeed.

When @SpaceX launched the #Globalstar communications satellite on June 19th, analysts knew something was not quite right. The Globalstar was not big enough to fill the #Falcon9. Something else must be inside. The secret contents: a train of four new classified satellites. 1/

These objects (USA 328 - 331) were covertly launched with Globalstar FM15. The second object in the 'train', USA 329, is slowly varying in brightness, which might indicate it is tumbling. It varies between about magnitude +5 and +10 with a period of around half a minute. 2/

The other payloads are steady in brightness, at about magnitude +7/+8. A much brighter 5th object following the train, at about mag +4.5 to +5, is a piece of debris from the Falcon 9 rocket that carried the satellites to space. 3/3

What’s up Booster 1061.9? Not much, just hanging around.
