SpaceX Planning Two Potential Launches This Week

Another SpaceX launch is planned this week. In fact, maybe two launches will be seen over the skies of Brevard County this week. Weather permitting, a Falcon 9 rocket will lift off Tuesday sometime during a launch window that opens at 5:35PM and closes tomorrow at 8:53PM. It will be carrying an ASTRA-1P communications satellite. The rocket will take off from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station and the first stage will land on a drone ship in the Atlantic Ocean. Then on Friday, SpaceX plans another Starlink launch from Cape Canaveral. Friday’s launch is planned to take place during a launch window that opens Friday at 1:47PM and closes at 5:47PM. The first stage of that rocket will also attempt another landing on a drone ship.
