Starlink 4-26 (Falcon 9)
9 August 2022
Space Launch Complex 39A
Kennedy Space Center

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched 52 Starlink satellites into orbit on the Starlink 4-26 mission at 10:14 p.m. on 9 August 2022 from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center. After stage separation, the first stage booster landed on the A Shortfall of Gravitas droneship stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

This was the third flight for the Falcon 9 first stage booster supporting this mission, which previously launched SES-22 and now two Starlink missions.

Very distant, blurry views of the launch during the brief moments when it appeared between the intervening cloud layers.
