During the Coronavirus lockdown many of the UK public have been looking up each evening. Above all, they have seen meteors the ISS and trains of SpaceX Starlink satellites fly over their homes.

On Wednesday 8th July 2020 we are in for a treat. We can watch a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launch a new batch of 57 Starlink satellites live from Cape Canaveral, Florida. It may be possible to watch the very same rocket and its payload of 57 Starlink satellites later in the evening as it passes over the UK after launch. It will not be visible 15 minutes after launch in the UK due to the earlier launch time.

Crew Dragon – Demo-2.

During the Coronavirus lockdown many of the UK public have been looking up each evening to see Meteors, Satellites, Planets, The International Space Station and more. Many have acquired a new found love of the night sky.

If you have been joining in or even just started looking up, you are in for an amazing treat!


On 27 May 2020 at 21:33 UK time (20:33 GMT) A SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket was set to blast off from Cape Canaveral Florida. Unfortunately, bad weather just before the craft was due to blast off scrubbed the launch.

The launch is now scheduled for Saturday May 30 at 20:22 UK time (19:22 GMT).

The mighty rocket will be carrying two Astronauts to the International Space Station inside a new Crew Dragon Spacecraft. This is the first ever commercial launch of Astronauts into space by a private company, SpaceX Crew Dragon Demo-2.

You can watch the launch live below. After lift off, you may be able to see the Crew Dragon spacecraft on its first orbit passing over the United Kingdom. An unmissable and historic sight!
