This was the shortest launch turnaround at SLC-4E, just 24 days since the DART launch.

Wow, I didn't notice that!

Previous record: 35d 23h 56m (PAZ -> Iridium-5) - long time ago in SpaceX terms, March 2018!
New record: 24d 06h 20m (DART -> Starlink Group 4-4)

I had noticed that but only now worked out Dec 18 to Feb 2 for NROL 87 is 46 days. Time to fit in another starlink mid way between for a couple of ~23 day gaps?

If you want a moment of pure beauty you have to tune in. That golden glow is so beautiful. Also, B1051

Welcome home, Falcon 9 B1051. This magnificently used looking rocket has flown to space and back 11 times, no big deal.
