One of the youngsters of the #Falcon9 fleet, B1063 has returned from its 2nd mission. Even in its infancy, this booster has already launched from both coasts, getting its start launching Sentinel-6 from Vandenberg.

Monday afternoon at Port Canaveral: #SpaceX #Falcon9 booster B1063 has one landing leg retracted. (Person for scale.)

That landing leg seems whiter than usual, no?

Closer view. Unusually white; the legs on either side are definitely darker.

Meanwhile, in Port Canaveral: #Falcon9 B1063-3 appears to have all its landing legs locked up once again, so it can be transported back to #SpaceX’s processing facilities at the Cape before its next mission.
