No major changes, still 80% GO with low additional risks

Quote from: SpaceX

SpaceX is targeting Sunday, May 9 for launch of 60 Starlink satellites from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. The instantaneous window is at 2:42 a.m. EDT, or 6:42 UTC, and a backup opportunity is available on Monday, May 10 at 2:21 a.m. EDT, or 6:21 UTC.

This will be the tenth flight of the Falcon 9 first stage rocket booster supporting this mission, which previously launched Crew Dragon’s first demonstration mission to the International Space Station, the RADARSAT Constellation Mission, SXM-7, and six Starlink missions. Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Just Read the Instructions” droneship, which will be located in the Atlantic Ocean. Both of Falcon 9’s fairing halves previously flew on the GPS III Space Vehicle 04 mission.

A live webcast of this mission will begin about 15 minutes prior to liftoff.

Actual T0 should be at 06:42:45 UTC, again doing the math with T.S. Kelso’s Starlink deployment time estimate.

07:46:36 UTC minus the mission duration (1 hour, 3 minutes, 51 seconds) is 06:42:45 UTC.
Liftoff for St. Jude's! Go Dragon, Go Falcon, Godspeed Inspiration4!

SpaceX should be publishing such data at its page like Roscosmos now!

I made such maths at the previous launch at: https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=53331.msg2232191#msg2232191

but there was no official confirmation of this exact time by independent sources!  :(

Several photographers have set remotes for this flight, so hopefully lots of great shots to come:

Using pre-launch state vectors provided by @SpaceX, CelesTrak has SupTLEs for the #Starlink V1.0-27 (not a typo) launch ...
OK.  What happened to V1.0-L26?

Out of order, and we don't really know for sure why.
L26 is expected to launch next Saturday, 2020-05-15, at 18:58 EDT / 22:58 UTC, and it is suspected to be a rideshare mission, possibly with Capella 5&6 SAR sats.

All hail the Falcon 9 life leader!

At 2:42am EDT, Falcon 9 B1051 will liftoff on its 10th mission, carrying more Starlink satellites. SpaceX has been pushing toward this milestone for a long time. It feels almost as big as landing one for the first time!
