Tonight, Falcon 9 delivered the JCSAT-16 spacecraft to a Geostationary Transfer Orbit approximately 36,000 km from Earth. The operator, SKY Perfect JSAT, has confirmed communication with the satellite.

Falcon 9's first stage also landed on our Of Course I Still Love You droneship stationed in the Atlantic.

JCSAT-16 is a commercial communications satellite that will be heading to a Geostationary Transfer Orbit on our Falcon 9 rocket. Our secondary mission objective includes a first-stage landing attempt on the droneship "Of Course I Still Love You," which will be on station in the Atlantic.

Weather is now 80% favorable for launch, which is targeted for 1:26am EDT Sunday, 10:26pm PDT Saturday. Tune in for our webcast 20 minutes before at www.spacex.com/webcast.
