Mr. Steven appears to be heading south which would seemingly indicate that this is another test run. Makes sense considering that there is a fairing half onboard. We will have to keep an eye on her though, as she is known to play games. 😉

No... pretty sure it’s very far from nearby land during a catch attempt.

Mr. Steven is departing Port Canaveral. Possibly heading out to catch fairings during Thursday’s mission, or for more test maneuvering just offshore? This was my first time seeing SpaceX’s fairing-catching boat in person — glad I made the impromptu trip to the Port for lunch!

and I enjoy a typical Florida beach day (night) under the stars and planets. The galactic core is faintly visible through heavy light pollution, fog, and light from the approaching sunrise. Bright casts a reflection on the ocean's surface.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of George Mendonsa, World War II veteran known as the kissing sailor in the famed photo . Many know the photo, but few know the story. Take a moment to listen here:

What’s on board a SpaceX Falcon 9 scheduled to launch Thursday night? A communications satellite, an Israeli lunar lander… and an experimental Air Force smallsat.
