The spacecraft was set to take off Sunday, but 33 seconds before the engines were fully fired, the launch was scrapped after a ship entered a hazard area, WFTV reported.

It was the fourth attempt at launching the Falcon 9 rocket to launch the COSMO-SkyMed Second Generation FM2, an Italian satellite.

The launch is now scheduled for Monday at 6:11 p.m. EST, WFTV reported.

Previous mission launches were called off because of the weather.

SpaceX is also scheduled to launch Starlink satellites to build a net above the earth to offer high-speed access.
