SpaceX delays late night Starlink launch for weather

lon Musk's SpaceX plans to launch 53 Starlink satellites from Florida late on Friday night, days after the company marked its 20th anniversary.

However, the launch was pushed back until to a new target launch of 12:42 a.m. "due to unfavorable weather," the company said in a statement.

Liftoff time is instantaneous, meaning any problems could prompt a delay of about 24 hours to Saturday night.

The launch comes as Musk and SpaceX have made multiple deliveries of Starlink terminals to the Ukrainian government

Earlier on Friday, weather had posed a 30% chance of violating launch conditions, according to a U.S. Space Force forecast.

"Showers will diminish as they reach the coast," forecasters said, adding that cumulus clouds posed the biggest potential issue for the launch.
