"On Thursday, December 2 at 6:12 p.m. EST, Falcon 9 launched 48 Starlink satellites and two BlackSky spacecraft to orbit from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. This was the ninth launch and landing of this Falcon 9 first stage booster, which previously launched GPS III-3, Turksat 5A, Transporter-2, and now six Starlink missions."

Following stage separation, the Falcon 9 booster touched down on SpaceX’s drone ship A Shortfall Of Gravitas positioned about 400 miles northeast of Cape Canaveral.
