This mission has been rescheduled to an earlier launch date, so the Without Mission a Beat mission has been delayed.

‘The Owl’s Night Continues’ is the first of three dedicated Electron missions for Synspective, with two scheduled to launch in 2022 and a third in 2023. Each mission will deploy a single StriX satellite, growing Synspective’s synthetic aperture radar (SAR) constellation developed to deliver imagery that can detect millimetre-level changes to the Earth’s surface from space, independent of weather conditions on Earth and at any time of the day or night.

‘The Owl’s Night Continues’ mission follows on from Rocket Lab’s first launch for Synspective in December 2020. That mission, named ‘The Owl’s Night Begins’, saw Rocket Lab’s Electron launch vehicle deploy the StriX-α satellite – the first spacecraft in Synspective’s planned constellation of more than 30 SAR satellites designed to collate data of metropolitan centers on a daily basis to support urban development planning, construction and infrastructure monitoring, and disaster response.

Tweet says window opens on Feb 28 UTC, so it can't be on Feb 27 UTC  ;)

But, yes, I noticed https://www.rocketlabusa.com/missions/next-mission/ says both Feb 27 UTC and Feb 28 UTC for window opening.

I think Feb 27 is a mistake.

Strange that we are two days away from Electron's launch and we don't have the Press Kit or the launch window.

But it doesn't say the full window, unless I'm mistaken and it is an instant window.

Rocket Lab did tweet yesterday confirming the start of the launch window, if you were worried that a lack of communication is ominous:
