SpaceX plans to launch 22 Starlink V2 mini satellites into the Generation 2 Group 6 shell on 2023-08-17 at 00:14 UTC (this will be in the evening of August 16th in western hemisphere time zones). The launch will be from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. The first stage booster, B1067, will be making its thirteenth flight, after a turnaround time of 59 days since its last mission. The operational orbit will be 530 km circular at 43°.

If needed, four additional opportunities are available starting at 9:07 p.m. ET (1:07 UTC on August 17) until 12:00 a.m. ET on August 17 (4:00 UTC).
