Space X Launch Later Today

Space X has a launch scheduled today at 16:31 UTC / 12:31 EDT from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.

The Dragon cargo ship will be launched on a resupply mission – CRS-12 – to the International Space Station. Docking is scheduled for 16 August, that gives us a couple of days to spot the ISS going overhead.

We will have a live link for the launch at 16:15 UTC / 12:15 EDT.

Forecast from US National Weather Service:
A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 11am. Mostly sunny, with a high near 91. Heat index values as high as 102. West southwest wind 5 to 10 mph.

Note: 11 am EDT / 15:00 UTC

Do not be surprised if the launch is delayed or postponed due to weather. The forecast appears fairly typical for Florida this time of year and a thunderstorm could pop-up.
