SpaceX Starlink Group 6-28 Launch

SpaceX plans to launch 23 Starlink V2 mini satellites into the Generation 2 Group 6 shell on 2023-11-18 at 04:00 UTC. The launch will be from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. The first stage booster, B1069, will be making its eleventh flight, after a turnaround time of 49 days since its last mission. The operational orbit will be 530 km circular at 43°.

Weather is forecast [PDF] as 60% favourable for launch. SpaceX continues to use its flexible launch window schedule for this mission.

Liftoff is targeted for 11:00 p.m. ET, with backup opportunities available until 2:59 a.m. ET on Saturday, November 18. If needed, additional opportunities are also available on Saturday, November 18 starting at 11:00 p.m. ET.

SpaceX can’t be bothered any more to give Universal Time and date for their launch opportunities, so I won’t be bothered to do their work for them.
