SpaceX Starlink Group 7-11 Launch

SpaceX plans to launch 22 Starlink satellites into Generation 2 Group 7 on 2024-01-24 at 00:35 UTC. The launch will be from Space Launch Complex 4 East at Vandenberg Space Force Base in California. The first stage booster, B1063, will be making its sixteenth flight, after a turnaround time of 65 days since its last mission.

Unlike the previous Starlink 7-9 launch from Vandenberg on 2024-01-03, none of the satellites in this launch are equipped for direct to mobile phone communications; they are all the regular v2 Mini configuration and will operate in a 530 km circular orbit at 53° inclination.


The launch attempt on 2024-01-20 aborted the countdown around one minute before launch. The next attempt is scheduled for 2024-01-21 at 02:00 UTC. I have updated the main post.


Scrubbed again due to bad weather—they’re going to give it another try at 02:00 UTC on 2024-01-22.

“Launch from California“, they said.

“The weather is always great in California”, they said.


The next try is set for 2024-01-24 at 00:35 UTC.


Is Vandenberg SFB in Southern California or Central?
