Make it Rain – Replay

A replay of Rocket Lab’s “Make it Rain” mission from their beautiful launch site on New Zealand’s Mahia Peninsula.

A fitting setting for what turned out to be a fine launch. The mission put BlackSky’s Global-3 Earth-observing satellite along with six other satellites.

The launch occurred at 04:30 UT on 29 June. Incidentally, I believe 04:30 UT is 16:30 (4:30 pm) local New Zealand time. I’d do well to remember that little nugget.
