This is now the 4th consecutive launch scrub for this mission three for bad weather violations and now a range violation by a cruise ship which had left Port Canaveral earlier.

Notice to mariners are issued before every launch days in advance to mitigate this occurrence and is very disappointing and expensive for everyone involved in getting the Falcon 9 off the ground and the satellite into its proper orbit.

SpaceX will try again on Monday just after sunset 6:11 PM EST or 23:11 UTC on January 31st 2022 from launch complex 40 Cape Canaveral Florida.
