Just now on Space Coast Live, a Falcon 9 is rolling down the road to one of SpaceX's launch pads. The booster, B1058-15, is one of the life leaders of the fleet and it is set to perform a record 15th flight next week!

I don't think so, but you're aware of how much guesswork goes into trying to interpret these.

The timing on this one aligns with O3b mPOWER 1/2.  The day-to-day time change on the other one aligns with a mid-latitude Starlink launch.
