0954-EX-ST-2023  Mission 1890 Starlink Group 6-5
NET June from Florida [May 31]
ASDS North  25  38  18   West  74  59  6

Launch is apparently NET late June, after the Satria launch NET June 17.  Launch is from SLC-40, as LC-39A will be occupied by the launch campaign for USSF-52, NET July 7.

Will the Starlink 5-12 launch, also NET June, take precedence over this launch?

NextSpaceflight, updated May 27:
Launch NET July

Updated nextspaceflight with 18 new entries, all upcoming Starlink missions for which SpaceX has filed FCC permits. I wouldn't pay too much attention on what month each one is placed on, I mostly tried to spread them out considering each coast launch cadence and current commercial launch manifest. Even with only a handful of commercial missions, it's so many Starlink missions that, even taking into acount extremely good pad turnarounds, some of these go all the way to October. The order is also kinda arbitrary, I'll admit, but we have no idea how the order will be. For all we know Starlink Group 6-17 could be the next Group 6 mission after Starlink Group 6-4 but for now we don't know so it's sent to end of the list so to speak. Anyhoo, it's something that can be easily changed once we get an idea of the actual order of missions, certainly not the end of world. At least the entries are there and we don't have to make a new one every time, just modify existing ones.

With the cancellation of the NGA notice (see above), that may end up not being correct. (But it's not like we have any better information yet.)

Which first stage will be used for this launch?  (Semi-rhetorical question)

The May 16 press briefing revealed Falcon 9 first stages are now cleared for use up to twenty times for Starlink launches. 1058.16 and 1060.16 are assumedly back in the rotation for such launches.

1076.6 and 1073.10 are undergoing modifications to become the Falcon Heavy side boosters for Jupiter 3, launch currently scheduled for July 24, and are no longer available for "single-stick" launches (at the current time).

1072.1 is reserved for Cygnus NG-20.

Available first stages, with UTC date of most recent recovery:
1058.16  Dec 17, 2022
1060.16  Jan 3
1062.15  May 27
1077.6    Jun 4
1078.4    Jun 5 (may be held back for a human spaceflight launch)
1067.13  June 18 (maybe)

Edit July 7: It's B1058.16!

I wonder about that gap of 8 hours between the hazard period of the Primary Day and the hazard period of Backup Day #1.

The others are 25-26 minutes, which is typical.
