Ugh, that's disappointing if that typo is right. Looks like it will be very foggy at 7am.

What source are you referring to?  I don't see any in this thread.

There's a few great weather sites but my favorites are "Marine Weather and Tides Lompoc, CA". Additionally "windy.com" is pretty good and shows all the webcams. Nothing is for certain but the trends day to day can paint some kind of a picture. The last few days it hasn't cleared out until 11am. Looking at the temperature and humidity... trends aren't so good for Saturday morning, especially at 7am. If the launch window opened closer to 10-11am I probably would have made the trip.

Hmm, visibility should be 10 statute miles.

So that seems to indicate that the fog won't be a problem?

Fog by itself isn't a problem. Potential weather issues are cumulus clouds, too strong winds, lightning, thunderstorms.

What are the odds?

My trip is 4 hours one-way, so I'd like to find out if I'm burning time (and gas)!

It's June on the SoCal west coast.  There's a saying:  "June gloom". 

Sometimes it fogs, and sometimes the day starts bright and clear.  You're asking for assurances that can't be given.

I'm asking for odds.

The weather violation % chance for the launch vehicle should be known.

Fog/no fog for viewing will be harder to come by.

I assume from its heritage that SARah is an X-band system, but is this actually stated anywhere?

Has anyone found solid information if there are secondary payloads on this launch? And if they are there, which are they?

As far as I can tell there isn't a Sherpa or Vigoride.  Not sure what is actually on there.

Confirms first stage 1071.3.

No mention of secondary payloads.  But, there's also no spacecraft separation time (or times) given in the after launch timeline--which would otherwise be an indication of one or more payloads.



Will there be a webcast view of the spacecraft from the appropriately-pointed rocketcams aboard?  (Fairing separation through spacecraft separation)

Are there NOTAMs and/or NOTMARs for this launch?  Particularly, when and where is the second stage disposal?

The stuff that comes out of the western range is such a pile that it's very difficult to tell what is what.

This NGA notice might be for second stage reentry.  I'm no map expert and I don't know how to plot all of these coordinates to see what the actual area looks like.
