A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched 22 Starlink satellites to low-Earth orbit from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station at 11:58 p.m. on 9 July 2023. Following stage separation, the first stage booster landed on the Just Read The Instructions droneship stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

This was the 16th flight for the first stage booster supporting this mission, which previously launched Crew-Demo-2, ANASIS-II, CRS-21, Transporter-1, Transporter-3, and now eleven Starlink missions.
