On Saturday, Nov. 11 SpaceX launched the Transporter-9 rideshare mission from launch complex SLC-4E at Vandenberg Space Force Base (VSFB). The rocket lifted off at 10:49 AM PST (18:49 UTC).
Deployment of payloads from the second stage to a Sun-synchronous orbit (SSO) at an altitude of approximately 520 kilometers began almost an hour after launch, and lasted for about 30 minutes. There were 89 deployment events from Falcon 9 releasing 90 spacecraft, some of which are orbital transfer vehicles (OTVs) carrying an additional 23 satellites for later deployment. SpaceX was able to immediately confirm successful deployment for 85 of those 89. The owners for two of those four unconfirmed deployments have announced on social media that they received signals from the satellites.
