Description : Falcon 9 Block-3
Four launches within the first 50 days of the year is an impressive accomplishment, and that’s exactly what SpaceX is aiming to do in dawn’s twilight Sunday morning, Feb. 18, targeting liftoff of their last Block-3 variant Falcon 9 rocket to launch a satellite for Spain at 6:16 a.m. PST (14:16 UTC) from SLC-4E at Vandenberg Air Force Base.
Sunrise will occur at 6:44 a.m., which means the Falcon 9 will launch in darkness, but should ascend into sunlight as it roars through the upper atmosphere on the power of its nine Merlin 1D+ engines to deploy the $180 million, 3,000-pound (1,400 kg) Paz radar-imaging satellite into low-Earth orbit. A rideshare payload of two SpaceX Starlink test satellites for the worldwide internet program are also onboard the rocket.
So don’t freak out again SoCal like you did when Iridium-4 launched last December, which saw the setting sun illuminate the rocket’s expelled gas to create a dazzling sight in the twilight. People were calling 911, the Los Angeles Fire Dept had to post a media advisory and even the Los Angeles mayor had to take to Twitter to calm people down. It’s not a conspiracy missile launch, nor is it aliens or the start of WWIII. It’s just another SpaceX launch, and you should start getting used to it, as the company’s launch tempo is only expected to increase.
