Wed Jun 19, 2024 21:25 UTC JRTI Astra 1P/SES-24
Sat Jun 22, 2024 17:25 UTC presumably ASOG Starlink Group 10-2
Mon Jun 24, 2024 9:30 UTC presumably JRTI  Starlink Group 8-9
Thu Jun 27, 2024 10:55 UTC presumably ASOG Starlink Group 10-3

Busy pad 40 and droneships. Is that possible? If all 4 launch by end of month, it would be impressive.

SLC-40 Starlink launches after GOES-U and before Turksat 6A:
Cross-post; my bold:
Ben Cooper's Launch Photography Viewing Guide; updated June 16:
Quote
The next SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will launch the SES-24/Astra 1P communication satellite for SES from pad 40 on June 18 at 5:35-8:22 p.m. EDT. A Falcon 9 will launch a Starlink batch from pad 40 on June 21 earliest at 1:47-5:47 p.m. EDT. The next Falcon Heavy will launch NASA & NOAA's GOES-U GOES-N weather satellite from pad 39A on June 25 at 5:16-7:16 p.m. EDT. The side boosters will land back at the Cape about eight minutes after launch. Upcoming launches include more Starlink batches from pad 40. A Falcon 9 will launch the Turksat 6A communication satellite on July 7. A Falcon 9 will launch the Worldview Legion 2 imaging satellite on July 15. The first stage will land back at the Cape about eight minutes after launch.
The "another SLC-40 Starlink launch" before GOES-U has vanished, probably due to the Starlink 10-2 launch abort of June 14, and its subsequent delay.



One day delays for Astra 1P/SES-24 and Starlink 10-2 mean that there are likely one day delays each for Starlink 8-9 and Starlink 10-3.

Jun 20 21:35   Astra 1P/SES-24  JRTI

Jun 25  09:07  Starlink 8-9           JRTI

Jun 28  10:55  Starlink 10-3        ASOG

Both pad and JRTI turnarounds look tight.
Also ASOG turnaround.

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

Falcon 9 first stages are now cleared for use over up to twenty times for non-crewed launches, although that number is apparently more restricted for Cargo Dragon or Cygnus than these other payloads.

1064.6 and 1065.6 are the Falcon Heavy side boosters for Europa Clipper.  1072.1 and 1086.1 are assigned as the Falcon Heavy side boosters for GOES-U.

1073.16 and 1076.15 may undergo modifications to become Falcon Heavy side boosters for a future launch, but both are currently available for "single-stick" launches.  (I personally wonder if the above will be done.)

B1083 is for Polaris Dawn?

Blue seas and blue skies for Falcon 9 landing. [May 8]
Quote from: Jared Isaacman tweet
Welcome back 1083

Available first stages, with UTC date of most recent recovery:
1083.4     May 8     Polaris Dawn?
1073.16   May 13  (repair after launch abort)
1062.22   May 18
1077.14   May 24
1076.15   Jun 1
1067.21  Jun 5
1069.17  Jun 8      (maybe)

Edit June 26: It's B1062.22, skipping B1083.4 and B1073.16 as expected.

The fleet leaders are 1061 and 1062. Each of them has been used 21 times.

Looks like B1062 is about to go on its 22nd flight. It just passed by the VAB about half an hour ago headed to the pad for an upcoming mission.

SpaceX is targeting Thursday, June 27 for a Falcon 9 launch of 23 Starlink satellites to low-Earth orbit from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. Liftoff is targeted for 7:14 a.m. ET, with backup opportunities available until 11:00 a.m. ET. If needed, additional opportunities are also available on Friday, June 28 starting at 7:14 a.m. ET.

A live webcast of this mission will begin on X @SpaceX about five minutes prior to liftoff. Watch live.

This is the 22nd flight for the first stage booster supporting this mission, which previously launched GPS III Space Vehicle 04, GPS III Space Vehicle 05, Inspiration4, Ax-1, Nilesat 301, OneWeb Launch 17, ARABSAT BADR-8, and 14 Starlink missions. Following stage separation, the first stage will land on the Just Read the Instructions droneship, which will be stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.
