BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – SpaceX is targeting Thursday, March 11 at 3:13 a.m. for the launch of 60 Starlink satellites from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.

Launch is targeted for 3:13 a.m. ET.

The payload will deliver around 60 satellites for SpaceX’s Starlink mission and will be designated as Starlink V1.0-L20.

Following first-stage separation, SpaceX will attempt to recover the booster engine on drone ship ‘Of Course, I Still Love You’ stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

According to the 45th Weather Squadron, weather conditions are 90-percent favorable for Tuesday’s rocket launch. The primary concern for a weather violation is liftoff winds and the cumulus cloud rule.

Coverage of the launch can be seen on Space Coast Daily TV.
