    sunlight isn't whipping up the wind so early usually. the later in the day the stronger the sun's abiltiy to warm air.

    The timing of satellite launch is called a 'launch window'. This is decided on the basis of the orbit you want to get the satellite into and the launch site. But so far, I haven't seen any pattern like 6:30 - 7:15. I remember watching an Ariane 4 getting launched at 2:00AM when I was doing my 6th grade. Some other launches I have seen were at 4:00 PM and so on.
