A SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule is set to carry a batch of astronauts to the International Space Station for best replacement windows diy the fourth time (including one demonstration mission) when it blasts off midweek from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida atop a Falcon 9 rocket.

The launch was originally set to happen early in the morning, Eastern Time, on Halloween, but it’s now scheduled for 10:10 p.m. PT on Tuesday, Nov. 2 (1:10 a.m. ET on Wednesday) due to “unfavorable weather conditions forecast along the flight path” this weekend, including high winds. Forecasters at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station are now predicting an 80% chance of favorable weather for the predawn Wednesday launch.

The whole thing will be streamed live via NASA’s feed right here.
