Yes Yes Yes! Finally one out of three planned launches for this week flew tonight at 7:18 PM or 23:18 UTC. SpaceX SaoCom1B for Argentina with first stage booster B-1059.4 flew and re-landed for the fourth time.

It was a pin point beautiful landing on LZ-1 at Cape Canaveral and not a drone ship out in the Atlantic ocean this time. Double sonic booms upon re-landing at the cape always makes it a thrill to see first hand.

Besides the successful deployment of SaoCom1B ride share satellites Gnomes-1 & Tyvak-0172 were also successfully deployed.

Congratulations to Elon Musk and his entire SpaceX team on another successful launch!
