It’s official just received instructions from the 45th Space Wing for todays SpaceX Falcon 9 Starlink 23 v1.0 Satellite launch from SLC-40 at Cape Canaveral Florida on Wednesday 4-7-21 at 12:34 PM EDT or 16:34 UTC.
Whether is 90% go for launch!
It’s been a long time since since we have had a day launch at Cape Canaveral!
Photo is a past SpaceX NROL-108 launch from the same launch pad SLC-40 in December 2020. Notice the strong back falling away during flight. I love how the 9 Merlin engines turns it into a golden strong back after liftoff!
Stay tuned and launch photos will be on spacenews.lu and spacenews.es today.
