The 45th Weather Squadron forecast a 40% chance of weather interfering with Friday night’s launch as weather clears going into the weekend.

This was the 11th flight for the first-stage booster used in the mission, which was previously used to launch CRS-24, Eutelsat HOTBIRD 13F, OneWeb 1, SES-18, SES-19, and six other Starlink missions.
