SpaceX Launch Today

SpaceX is planning to launch the Arabsat-6A into orbit later today. Today being 11 or 12 April. Launch time has been reset to 21:35 ET (11 Apr) / 01:35 UT (12 Apr).

This will be a fun launch to watch because the Arabsat-6A is sitting atop the Falcon Heavy at launch complex 39A at the Kennedy Space Center.

My previous admonition still holds: keep in mind this launch is in Florida so weather will play a part in whether this gets off the ground on time.

Right now the US National Weather Service is predicting:

Today – Sunny, with a high near 83. East wind 5 to 10 mph.

Tonight – Partly cloudy, with a low around 70. East wind around 10 mph.
