Launch delay?

Just Read the Instructions droneship is returning to Port Canaveral.

Finn Falgout tracker destination was set as 'Turksat LZ' so they were definitely not going out for just a sea trial. Updates to follow.

Droneship tug Finn Falgout suffered a mechanical issue not far offshore from Cape Canaveral and has been forced to return to port with JRTI droneship.

Tug Hawk is available and could replace Finn Falgout, leaving immediately. Unlikely that this will delay the Turksat mission.

Edit to add:

To add to this - earlier information via me that droneship tug Finn Falgout was having a mechanical issue appears to be incorrect, based on morning observations.

My apologies. I try to be as accurate as possible but won't get it right every single time.

The droneship Just Read the Instructions returned to port this morning – a sign that the Turksat 5A launch is likely delayed. The launch was originally scheduled for Jan. 4 on Falcon 9.

And @TGMetsFan98 has spotted that the Temporary Flight Restrictions have been canceled, so this will be a confirmed delay.

Good timing, too — the 45th said SpaceX’s next launch of Turksat was “placed TBD due to mission assurance.”

I received an interesting notice from the NGA.  It's plain ol' Hazardous Operations rather than Rocket Launching, but it otherwise looks like a notice for what the Türksat 5A launch was originally scheduled to be (before whatever happened yesterday that caused Finn Falgout and JRTI to make a U-turn and return to port, and the TFRs to be canceled).

There goes my "filter NOTMAR messages on (space or rocket)" strategy

I also have filters to tag messages that contain ROCKET LAUNCHING or SPACE DEBRIS, but I look briefly at every message because a straight cancel (rather than a cancel and replace) will not contain those keywords.  And because occasionally there are situations like this.

But if this had not been the only new email in the folder where I send all emails from @nga.mil, I very probably would have just deleted it without noticing what it appears to be.

Just Read the Instructions droneship is about to depart from Port Canaveral.

Rather unusual nightime departure... Does Turksat-5A have a new launch date?

Live on NSF Fleetcam ➡

Edit to add: hmm, the tugs have moved off and JRTI hasn’t moved

Departure (For real!)

Just Read the Instructions is outbound from Port Canaveral, presumably for the Turksat-5A mission.

JRTI previously departed earlier in the week but was recalled to Port Canaveral because of a mission delay.

#Turksat spokesperson confirms 5A launch on Falcon 9 now targeting Thursday, Jan. 7 for  2028 ET liftoff from Cape Canaveral. Clouds are a concern, so keeping an eye on Friday’s backup window (same time).

Per SFN, launch window is 8:28 pm to 12:28 am  EST.

The time from Turksat’s tweet above is incorrect.
