Weather looks OK for next SpaceX Starlink launch from Cape Canaveral

Posted by in categories: climatology, internet, satellites

The weather forecast appears to be trending slightly toward favorable conditions for the Space Coast’s next launch from Kennedy Space Center.

If schedules hold, a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will likely encounter 60% “go” conditions for its 5:22 p.m. Tuesday liftoff from pad 39A, the Space Force’s 45th Weather Squadron said Saturday. The 230-foot rocket will carry about 60 Starlink satellites for the company’s tenth internet constellation mission.

Showers and thunderstorms are expected Tuesday but should move mostly inland just before the launch time.
