CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — SpaceX is standing down from its planned Friday afternoon rocket launch at Kennedy Space Center.
The next batch of Starlink satellites was originally set to launch Thursday afternoon from Launch Complex 39-A. That launch time got moved to 1:57 p.m. Friday, Sept. 18.
Late Thursday, however, SpaceX said it was standing down from the Sept. 18 launch because of poor weather conditions in the fairing and booster recovery area.
The company said it will announce a new target date once it gets confirmation.
This launch will be Starlink-12, the 13th mission sending broadband internet satellites into orbit.
You can watch live launch coverage on SpaceX's YouTube page.
Kennedy Space Center will have launch viewing opportunities from the North Atlantis Lawn, which is about 6.7 miles from the launch pad.
Viewing opportunities are included with admission and included bleacher seating with launch commentary.
