The next SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral will launch the eighteenth Starlink batch from pad 39A on February at ~6am EST. Launch times for Starlink launches get around 20-22 miutes earlier each day. Then, a Falcon 9 will launch the nineteenth Starlink batch from pad 40 on February 4 earliest at 1:19am EST.

Falcon 9 is now back to horizontal, based on Spaceflight Now webcam (members only).
From this, I deduce no Static Fire today.
Edit LV returning to the vertical.

SF is still planned for today, although the rocket remains horizontal (webcam here), so I don't know if they can still make it.

Update on Just Read the Instructions.

The droneship has changed direction and is no longer returning to Cape Canaveral.

JRTI is now heading back towards the Starlink LZ. (Check out the loop!)

Conditions are forecasted to improve enough that a Feb 1 launch attempt is feasible.

Ben Cooper and Next SpaceFlight have updated their calendars.

SpaceX has delayed the launch of the Falcon 9 with another batch of 60 Starlink satellites until Monday, following an aborted static fire on Friday. It will make another attempt to static fire the rocket's first stage on Sunday afternoon.

With static firing scheduled for this afternoon, is launch still set for Monday morning (Feb. 1) or has it moved out to Tuesday?

Overdue recovery fleet status map!

Both active droneships are en-route to the Starlink LZ as SpaceX prepares for two Falcon 9 missions in one week.
