CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — SpaceX is set to launch its Falcon Heavy rocket from the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station Sunday evening.

This mission, USSF-67, is flying for the U.S. Military. According to the 45th Weather Squadron, the launch is scheduled for around 5:55 p.m. ET.

This will be the fifth flight for the powerful rocket. SpaceX previously performed a "static fire" test from the Kennedy Space Center, a common prelaunch test.

SpaceX will post a livestream of the launch 15 minutes before liftoff.
