Dragon Undocks, Scientific Cargo Headed Back to Earth

Following commands from ground controllers at SpaceX in Hawthorne, California, Dragon undocked at 5:05 p.m. EST from the forward port of the station’s Harmony module. At the time of undocking the station was flying at an altitude about 260 miles southwest of Chile.

After re-entering Earth’s atmosphere, the spacecraft will make a parachute-assisted splashdown off the coast of Florida on Friday, Dec. 22. NASA will not broadcast the splashdown, but updates will be posted on the agency’s space station blog.

Dragon arrived at the space station Nov. 11 as SpaceX’s 29th commercial resupply services mission for NASA, delivering about 6,500 pounds of research investigations, crew supplies, and station hardware. It was launched Nov. 9 on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Launch Complex 39A at Kennedy.

I foolishly believed the "4.05pm EST" said twice in this NASA announcement, which also says "5.05pm" EST.
I gather the latter value was correct:  5.05pm EST = 2205 UTC for the undocking  - right?

Once Dragon has been retrieved by SpaceX’s recovery team, the critical science aboard the spacecraft will be transported via helicopter to @NASAKennedy and provided to researchers

Do we have a landing location? The FAA quoted above said "Pensacola" but the ground track from today's TLE
looks more like the Tallahassee recovery zone at 84.2W, 29.3N, vaguely consistent with the track for Shannon shown upthread

The FAA TFR (NOTAM) said Tallahassee.

As I've said many times before, the FAA ATCSCC Current Operations Plan Advisory is not official information. It is advisory for Air Traffic Controllers. It is often incorrect and even more often incomplete. While useful, it should not be considered definitive.

A reliable source, but no exact time of splashdown nor indication of Dragon or payload recovery.
