Tonight: Falcon Heavy and Two Sonic Booms

SpaceX is targeting Wednesday, July 26 for Falcon Heavy’s launch of the Hughes JUPITER 3 mission to a geosynchronous transfer orbit from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

The 99-minute launch window opens at 11:04 p.m. ET (03:04 UTC on July 27).

If needed, a backup launch opportunity is available on Thursday, July 27 with the same window.

Both of the side boosters on this mission previously supported USSF-44 and USSF-67. Following stage separation, Falcon Heavy’s two side boosters will land on SpaceX’s Landing Zones 1 and 2 (LZ-1 and LZ-2) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. 

A live webcast of this mission will begin about 15 minutes prior to liftoff.

  1. Damn.

    Well, it’s been full overcast this evening and tomorrow at the same time it’s supposed to be clear skies, moon will be at waxing gibbous so hopefully there won’t be too much reflection to impede seeing what little can be seen from New Yorkistan.
