Calculations of the Space Forces show a lowered forecast for SpaceX’s next launch from Cape Canaveral on Thursday, a mission that will include sound shocks as the Falcon 9 amplifier returns to the edge of Space for landing.

Delta 45 space flight officials say the gloomy and rainy disturbance that continues on the Coastal Coast this week is to blame, but EST could be cleared before the ascent window on Thursday at 6:11 p.m. The latest forecast has reduced the probability of a “percentage shift” in the Launch Complex from 40 to 60%, which is slightly lower than the previous version.

“While the deep humidity in the atmosphere will gradually disappear tonight and tomorrow, the proximity of this system and the strong land current will support the scattered rains moving towards the coast on Thursday,” forecasters said on Thursday.

The main concerns, they said, were “cloudy clouds and rain that have soaked into the low-lying land stream, as well as windy conditions during the ascent.”

Forecasters added a note about the return of the Falcon 9 rocket booster to the 1st landing zone at Cape Canaveral: landing conditions were reduced from “low risk” to “medium risk”.

This marks the second landing of the first phase of the 162-foot Falcon 9 on Cape Canaveral this month, a maneuver that will cause audible noises to be heard across Central Florida depending on weather conditions. Residents need to be prepared for the boom, as they can be surprising, but generally harmless.

In the form of payloads, COSMO-SkyMed 2 or CSG-2, the Italian space agency’s Earth-protected satellite, scans the Earth’s surface for both civilian and military purposes. The Falcon 9 will fly south, launching CSG-2 into polar orbit at an altitude of 385 miles.

The CSG-2 marks SpaceX’s fourth lunar flight, all of which are polar, with the second having a local landing feature. The Coastal Coast, including the United Launch Alliance, will have conducted five missions so far, which is a great cadence for Cape and KSC.

The SpaceX Falcon 9 amplifier landed at Canaveral Cape Space Forces Station after launching the Transporter-3 mission on Thursday, January 13, 2022.

If the CSG-2 can stick to the calendar, another launch is scheduled for this month: SpaceX’s next Starlink satellite party is scheduled to launch from the Kennedy Space Center on Saturday, Jan. 29 at 3 p.m. Although Astra startup’s small rocket is scheduled for later this month, it has yet to be clearly planned.
