Star One C1 is a Brazilian communications satellite. It was launched on 14 November 2007 by an Ariane 5ECA carrier rocket, as part of a dual-payload launch with Skynet 5B.

It was launched atop an Ariane 5-ECA rocket at 22:06 UTC on November 14, 2007. This launch had previously been delayed from November 9 due to a problem with the rocket, and then from November 12 due to a problem with the launch pad.
