Streaming starts at 18.30 (GMT) on SpaceX.com

They're using youtube, so in case of any bandwidth capacity issues on the SpaceX site, direct YouTube link
(You've no idea how hard it was not to throw a rickroll in there)

[edit] Launch delayed to 19:20 "due to upper level wind shear".
Although there's one report saying 19:50, but I think they misread a tweet.
(Window closes at 21:30 so if it's not launched by then it's postponed to 18:30 tomorrow)

[edit2] Launch now 20:05 earliest (based on the SpaceX webcast page). Window closes at 21:00, not 21:30.

8:45PM now. That's pretty much last chance before tomorrow if the window closes at 9

T-12, Will it be visible from Europe after takeoff?

Saw something here just minutes (7 or maybe 17 I think) after launch, a few years ago,
think it was a ISS docking thingymajig.
