SpaceX Starlink Group 5-10 Launch

SpaceX plans to launch 56 Starlink satellites into Generation 2 Group 10, with an eventual 530 km circular service orbit at 43° inclination, on 2023-03-29 at 20:01 UTC. (Note that both Europe and North America are now on summer time, so the offset from UTC to local time is one hour greater than for winter time.) The launch will be from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. The first stage booster, B1077, will be making its fourth flight, after a turnaround time of 39 days since its last mission. Weather is forecast as 60% favourable for launch; if the launch is postponed to the next day, weather is expected to be 85% favourable.

Here is a pre-flight preview from Everyday Astronaut.
