SpaceX plans to launch the next batch of Starlink satellites Tuesday night, according to a geospatial navigation alert and an FAA warning.

The launch window runs from 8:04 PM to 11:58 PM EST. While SpaceX tends to launch early in its designated launch window, various factors — such as weather — play a role in the final timing.

On Tuesday afternoon, SpaceX announced that it would target a liftoff time of 10:16 PM EST.

This will be the first launch in June from Cape, and the 42nd launch of the year.

The Falcon 9 rocket will lift off from Cape Canaveral Launch Complex 40 and travel on a southeast trajectory. Eight and a half minutes after liftoff, the Falcon 9 rocket’s first stage booster will land on a drone in the Atlantic Ocean. Local sonic booms are not expected.

Since SpaceX has not yet confirmed this mission, the identity of the booster is unknown.

However, the FAA lists this mission as Starlink 8-5, making it the fifth batch of eight Starlink satellites to be built. Until this mission, SpaceX had been launching the six-satellite constellation from the Space Coast.
