SpaceX Aims for Next Starlink Launch Window Late Monday Night at Cape Canaveral


SpaceX has an upcoming rocket launch window scheduled for Monday to launch more Starlink high-speed internet satellites into orbit.

Although not officially confirmed, SpaceX’s 4½-hour launch window is set to open at 11 p.m. EST Monday and extend beyond midnight to 3:31 a.m. Tuesday.

Here are additional details about the launch:

  • About: A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will launch Starlink satellites into low-Earth orbit from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.
  • Location: Launch Complex 40.
  • Trajectory: Southeast.
  • Local sonic boom: No.
  • Booster landing: Drone ship out on the Atlantic Ocean.

Previously, SpaceX’s Starlink mission created a 2:47 a.m. EST launch on Wednesday, marking the 65th orbital launch of the year from the Space Coast and extending 2023’s ongoing annual record.

Notably, the day before the recent launch, SpaceX expanded its Starlink high-speed internet network to Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands in the western Pacific Ocean.

“Since the original license to operate the Starlink Generation 1 network was granted in March 2018, SpaceX has rapidly deployed satellites to bring internet to the hardest to reach places in the United States and abroad,” the company announced in February.

Currently, SpaceX has launched 5,445 Starlink satellites into low-Earth orbit since May 2019, with 5,041 still functioning in orbit.
