SpaceX Starlink Group 6-33 Launch

SpaceX plans to launch 23 Starlink V2 mini satellites into the Generation 2 Group 6 shell on 2023-12-07 at 04:01 UTC. 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 ninth flight, after a turnaround time of 38 days since its last mission. The operational orbit will be 530 km circular at 43°.

Weather is forecast [PDF] as 95% favourable at the start of the launch window. SpaceX continues to use its flexible launch window schedule for this mission.

Liftoff is targeted for 11:01 p.m. ET, with backup opportunities available until 2:59 a.m. ET on Thursday, December 7.

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.
