If moved to Sunday evening, the launch has 90% chance for “go,” though that chance falls to 80% as the night goes on, the forecast shows.

This is expected to be the 17th flight for the first-stage booster used in the launch, which was previously used in the GPS III-3, Turksat 5A, Trasnporter-2, Intelsat G-33/G-34 and Transporter-6 missions, along with 11 other Starlink launches.

After stage separation, the booster will land on the Just Read The Instructions droneship in the Atlantic Ocean.
