I saw this announcement last night on the Space.com website – You can watch SpaceX launch a Starlink satellite fleet before dawn on Sunday. Here’s how.: https://www.space.com/spacex-starlink-17-launch-webcast. Worth a read if you are into things space-related. There are photos in the link. Much longer article, but here’s some basic information.

The Falcon 9’s record-tying 8th launch was delayed from Friday.

Update for 7 p.m. EST on Friday (Feb. 5): SpaceX announced on Friday afternoon that it’s standing down from Sunday’s (Feb. 7) planned launch of 60 Starlink internet satellites to perform additional inspections of the Falcon 9 rocket involved. The company has not yet announced a new target launch date for the mission.

SpaceX will launch another big batch of its Starlink internet satellites early Sunday (Feb. 7) on a record-tying mission, and you can watch the action live.

A two-stage Falcon 9 rocket topped with roughly 60 satellites for SpaceX’s growing Starlink broadband constellation is scheduled to lift off Sunday at 4:31 a.m. EST (0931 GMT) from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida. Shortly thereafter, the booster’s first stage will come back down to Earth for a vertical landing. 

You can watch all the action live here at Space.com, courtesy of SpaceX, or directly via the company.
