    This is an area off the US west coast and seems to be set up to 
    accommodate a need to return to Earth 12.5 hours after launch with a 
    splashdown about 19:10 UTC. This was sent out today but the original was 
    issued May 19 as soon as a decision was made to try again May 22.
    
    My own take on it is that it covers for the solar panels failing to 
    unfold after entering orbit. A similar NOTAM was issued for May 19, the 
    day of the original Dragon launch attempt.
