Space Launch Complex 40
Cape Canaveral Space Force Station

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 1:17 a.m. on 11 August 2023. After stage separation, the Falcon 9's booster landed on the Just Read The Instructions droneship stationed in the Atlantic Ocean.

This was the ninth flight for the first stage booster supporting this mission, which previously launched CRS-24, Eutelsat HOTBIRD 13F, OneWeb 1, SES-18 and SES-19, and now five Starlink missions.

A short time exposure highlights the second stage engine plume and the second stage streaking to orbit.
