#1 Mysterious. Reports elsewhere say it's another KH-11 Keyhole. The Keyhole is turning out to be the M1911 of imaging satellites, many replacements have been proposed but it's so good that technologically massaging each new bird a bit is more than goon enough.

#6 #5 SpaceX had two back to back launches. One on the west coast, one on the east. The falcon 9 that needed to avoid the Titan was was launched from Vandenberg and successfully landed on the Pacific drone barge.

The crash water landing was off the coast of Cape Canaveral Frorida.
