Looks like a full stack is imminent, the SQD has retracted and the hot stage ring is going up.

Mariners are advised to avoid the below bounded area and operate in a heightened state of awareness from 1200Z to 2000Z on November 17, 2023:

22° 09' 0.00" N 167° 02' 0.00" W

23° 21' 0.00" N 162° 33' 0.00" W

Alternate timeframes for operations, if required, are 1200Z to 2000Z from November 18, 2023 to November 20, 2023, and from November 27,2023 to November 29, 2023.

Enclosure 4 (graphic of hazard areas):

Mariners are advised that the below bounded area will be temporarily dangerous to navigation due to hazardous space operations from 1200Z to 2000Z on November 17, 2023:

23° 50' 0.00" N 157° 47' 0.00" W

23° 59' 0.00" N 157° 01' 0.00" W

This area is the most likely landing area for spacecraft and debris. Vessels should avoid the area due to hazardous operations, falling debris, and potential firearms use. Vessels may be requested to alter course due to hazardous operations and are requested to contact “range control” via VHF-FM Channel 16 or via phone at 956-604-1037 prior to entering the area. If unable to contact range control prior to entering or while in the area, relay messages through U.S. Coast Guard Honolulu. Updated information on operations and associated hazards will be available on VHF-FM Channel 22A.

Alternate timeframes for operations, if required, are 1200Z to 2000Z from November 18, 2023 to November 20, 2023, and from November 27,2023 to November 29, 2023..

Hot staging ring finally appears to be installed after many attempts to put it in.

Nevermind. They're lifting it again.

hi! I am a 13 year old neurodivergent individual, although I can understand most things adults can too. I  have been interested in space since I was 5. Although I still have a lot to learn, I try my hardest to understand others, although sometimes I might not, so please correct me if I do not listen to others. thanks!

If you were wondering why FWS needs some time to do their report, you should try to read this thing. It has some points of interest, but mostly it lets us see what FWS is required by law to do. I think it's clear that they had this thing queued up and ready to go, and then did a quick review and edit to handle any last-minute changes.

There is one major boo-boo: they included a report that SpaceX submitted to them:
"FINAL: BIOLOGICAL MONITORING ANNUAL REPORT
FOR THE SPACEX BOCA CHICA LAUNCH SITE
CONSTRUCTION AND SEASONAL AVIAN MONITORING –
JULY 2022 TO JUNE 2023"
Paid for by SpaceX, and marked "Proprietary and Confidential".  It's quite an interesting document. SpaceX paid a specialist consultancy to actually go out and conduct multiple field surveys.
