SpaceX is targeting 2:07 p.m. Thursday for Starlink-12, the 13th mission sending broadband internet satellites into orbit.
The satellites will be sent to space aboard a Falcon 9 rocket from Launch Complex 39-A.
Weather conditions are currently at 60-percent favorable for Thursday’s launch, according to the 45th Space Wing at nearby Patrick Air Force Base. There’s also a backup launch opportunity on Friday, but the Space Wing predicts only a 40-percent chance of favorable conditions.
Kennedy Space Center will have launch viewing opportunities from the North Atlantis Lawn, which is about 6.7 miles from the launch pad.
Viewing opportunities are included with admission and included bleacher seating with launch commentary. The viewing area opens at 12:15 p.m.
