How accurate is the countdown clock usually on this site? I want to come down from Northern Cal to see a RTLS but need a planning window.

Why do they have different trajectories? Is it weather related or where they need to get to in space?

It depends on the mission and the orbit they would like to put the payload in space.

Hi, I am trying to make a trip to see the launch on 4/17 but don’t see this launch scheduled anywhere else like SpaceX website or base station. Anyone has a past experience on accuracy of this and is there a way to confirm the launch. Thank you very much!
