BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. — SpaceX is counting down to the launch of a Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.
The mission will send another batch of 23 Starlink satellites into low earth orbit.
As in past missions, the satellites will be used to provide broadband internet capability to locations throughout the world.
The launch was originally scheduled for Wednesday at 11:01 p.m. The launch window has since been adjusted twice with the liftoff time now set for 12:07 a.m. Thursday.
According to Spaceflight Now, SpaceX has not given a specific reason for the adjustment.
After separation, the first stage booster will land on a droneship named “Just Read the Instructions” stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.
SpaceX said it has planned a backup window for the launch at the same time on Thursday night.
When it happens, you can see the rocket lift off on Channel 9 and right here at WFTV.com.
