The top end of the Starlink stack tension rods and deployment system are pretty clearly visible. Do the red links say remove before flight?

I have updated my fan-made press kit for the new launch date.
GO for launch, GO for age of reflight

About 3.5 hours until the #SpaceX #Starlink launch and we already have storms firing north of KSC. July is a roll of the dice with Florida weather.

Edit to add:

No need to panic. Just so everyone knows, there are storms over Central Florida pushing east already. The latest forecast was for a 40% chance of KSC wx violating launch constraints. Time for this to move out; just thought people would like to know. #spaceX #Starlink #Blacksky
