FALCON HEAVY STP-2 LAUNCH, June 24, 2019, KSC, 11:30 pm ET

Update: June 8:  The launch date has been postponed to June 24.  The launch time apparently is unchanged.

Original entry:  SpaceX will launch its next Falcon Heavy rocket from Launch Complex-39A at Kennedy Space Center, FL on June 22, 2019 at 11:30 pm ET.

This is the first night launch of the Falcon Heavy.

Some of the payloads are for the Air Force’s Space Test Program-2 (STP-2), which involves launching 24 satellites and requires four upper-stage engine burns and three separate deployment orbits.  The launch will reuse the side boosters from the previous Falcon Heavy launch, Arabsat-6A.

NASA and NOAA have satellites on this launch as well.
