UPDATE and DISCUSSION Thread for the return of F9-0024-S1 post-landing on the ASDS.

Expected back into Port Canaveral in the coming days.

Previous return (the first) of a S1 on the ASDS into Port Canaveral:
https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=40002.0

Lessons learned from that coverage:

1) If you are in the area, attempt to take photos and upload them into this thread.

2) Webcam footage is the property of the provider. This link is the best for viewing the stage during arrival and processing:
http://www.portcanaveralwebcam.com/ - However, due to owner spotting social media promoting ad block, etc. He got upset with all sites using his screenshots. He will tweet some out (link, accredit), we may be able to use a few (with a link, and a full screenshot to include his logo, anything else won't be allowed). The best thing would be to get our own photos for this thread. Marek did an an amazing job with that last time, but the more the merrier.

3) Eventually we'll move to a set thread for numerous stages, as they begin to arrive back with regularity (crazy just to even say that! But that will eventually be the scenario!)

Is it by mistake? I don't know what the date was earlier. E3 crew are not known to update that information.

That seems really fast.

Today I was able to grab 2 sets of coordinates from marinetraffic.com & export to google earth for measurement... at it's current rate of travel it will be back in 68 hrs/ 2.9 days. So maybe Tuesday morning or noon?

Hope we have more people weigh in on this because I'd really like to be there when it arrives but I have to have a few hours warning for travel.

That should be correct. Outbound trip took them almost exactly 4 days. Inbound trip at same speed would have them back in port Tuesday. We should begin to see EIII from shore-based AIS some time Tuesday morning.

You should have several hours between the time they show up offshore on AIS and the time they enter port.

March, not May.  Bad (outdated, never updated) data.

Let's not forget the near shore currents that forced the ASDS entourage to head south first, then enter the currents headed northwest, it could add another day to transit time.

The Port Canaveral webcam showed the launch.  Go to "Tweets" underneath the main window and scroll down about halfway.  There's a short video clip.

So I guess a Tuesday port arrival is most likely, given currents preclude a straight line course back?

Sounds likely. If it's still out Tuesday afternoon, I think I'll head on over there & spend the night hoping to catch it.

It seems to be heading straight back to Port Canaveral this time, going by this plot posted in the SpaceX subreddit (track updated):

So Monday around noon?
Wildly optimistic prediction, Superheavy recovery on IFT-4 or IFT-5 (Welp a little early on IFT-4, but still have a shot at 5)

I'm not seeing anything on the webcam... wondering if there is anything on the back of Searcher...
