I am checking launches to other sites and this launch does not match other sites for the date. How sure is this? I am actually hoping to see in person so watching closely.

During the last couple of launches, the servers have been overloaded with all the traffic. We are working on a fix for the issue.

Another A-1 Launch SpaceX , seems more folks are watching these launches now due to increase server traffic online .
Got to get online early now to watch it all , so the interest in “space” is increasing which is great .
