Starship SN9 looks to be in great shape after yesterday's tanking tests. More testing will follow as it prepares for its first flight. At the Production Site, new nosecones are outfitted and SN10 is readied for final stacking.

 A rain washed lens shot of various pieces. The SN11 nose is still hiding back in the tent.
 Wind will probably keep activity low today.
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

The first starship SN12 section has been moved into midbay from labpadre sentinel cam

 SN12 takes it's place in the midbay.

The portable building was moved and is now next to the bunker at the tank farm.

With the New Year upon us, SpaceX readies Starship SN9 for flight. SN10 is nearly fully stacked, with SN11 and SN12 close behind. 2021 looks to be a landmark year for the Starship program.

 Caught me with the cheap pocket camera.
 SN10 gets tall.
