It is a beautiful day on the Central Coast, but I'm stuck inside working instead of flying down to watch a rocket launch.
 
2022-08-12 5:29:28 PM  
\o/ rockets!

NextSpaceFlight has it at 5:40EDT/2:40PDT, so SpaceX should go live soon, hopefully.

Hey!  Glad someone thought to submit a link!

B1061.10 - Another booster joins the ten-flight club.
 
2022-08-12 5:39:00 PM  
Possibly four more flights this month, all Starlink.

Three flights in the last nine days.  Hot damn!

Currently don't have scotch, but a decent selection of bourbons and whiskeys.

LIFTOFF!!!  Here we go again!
 
2022-08-12 5:41:10 PM  
Pretty...
 
2022-08-12 5:41:53 PM  
The camera rotation from that one angle was almost concerning.
 
2022-08-12 5:43:00 PM  
Damn, that ground camera tracking always makes it look like the vehicle is heeling over to head for the ground!
 
2022-08-12 5:44:01 PM  
Bye-bye, Fairings!

I think we've all earned a drink this evening.  Pour 'em!

extra debris below the booster?

I know they're there on every mission, but the crumpled up balls of foil around the top of the engine bell on the second stage never look right.

That foil, or frozen gasses?

Nice landing footage today
 
2022-08-12 5:49:30 PM  
A bit off-center, but I'll allow it.

Nailed it! never gets old!

No video glitches, so just a bit off-center is ok.
 
2022-08-12 5:51:28 PM  
Next launch from SpaceX is on the 19th at 3:48 pm EDT.

Ah, cool.  It is hard to tell from the video.  I wonder where it forms since it seems to keep accumulating during the burn.
 
2022-08-12 5:53:13 PM  
I'll never get tired of watching the first stage land on the recovery ship.
 
2022-08-12 5:53:17 PM  
I saw a squiggly line in the sky and wondered if it was a SpaceX launch. It was.
 
2022-08-12 5:55:12 PM  
They didn't show mission control or the host at all on this feed.  That's the first time I've noticed that.  They used to do a shot of the host during the intro and a few shots of mission control as b-roll, but I guess with the broadcasts getting so short, there is no need for b-roll.

They don't show them releasing the satellites any more, but that pretty much looks the same every time.

Here's the updated list of successful SpaceX Missions. I've realigned the dates and order for upcoming flights. Last year was a record, with Thirty-One missions.  There are currently 65 listed so far for this year, with more Starlink missions to come! We can count on some of these slipping into 2023 or later, for any one of myriad reasons, but 2022 is already another record year.  SpaceX's launch cadence is about one launch every 6.2 days so far; we'll see if they can maintain that rate.

I'm looking forward to seeing Starship deploy Starlink 2.0 satellites from the Pez Dispenser.

Looks like they have a virgin booster on tap for Crew 5.
 
2022-08-12 6:13:54 PM  
If they keep this up, this year, they will fly more missions than 2020 and 2021 added together - they're on pace for 59 flights this year.
