If timelines continue, SpaceX will face 70% of "transition" conditions at the Kennedy Space Center for its launch of a secret intelligence satellite owned by the National Reconnaissance Office.

The 3-hour window for launch on Thursday began at 9 a.m., but SpaceX announced just after 11 a.m. that the launch would be rescheduled for Friday, Dec. 18.

This Falcon 9's first stage has already flown four times previously, including during two of SpaceX's commercial resupply missions to the International Space Station for NASA, and during a Starlink launch, as well as for SAOCOM 1B, a satellite launch operation for the Argentinian space agency in August. An exact liftoff time within that three-hour window has not yet been released.

"The primary weather concern for an attempt Saturday is cumulus clouds associated with these coastal showers". Though not included in the "percent go" calculation at pad 39A, forecasters noted that upper-level winds could be a moderate risk by Thursday morning. The first-stage booster of the Falcon 9 will attempt to make a landing ashore at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.

As it descends towards the tip of the cape, space beekeepers and spectators must be prepared for the three sonic booms created by the booster, which are harmless except for a few fears and triggered vehicle alarms.

The NRO tweeted: "Gorillas are peaceful animals but can be fierce when necessary".

A new NRO mission, launched on board a United Launch Alliance's Atlas V rocket on November 13, highlighted a baffling Lord of the Rings subject, including some elvish content. "Like gorillas, our NROL-108 mission is vigilant and ready to defend itself, which demonstrates NRO's commitment to protecting United States war fighters, interests, and allies".
