Per the Crew-3 webcast, the vehicle for this mission will be doing a static fire tomorrow.
Do we know approximately when tomorrow (Nov 11)?

If the mission launches on time, it's going to break two records by launching 34h 37m after Crew-3:

1. Shortest time between two SpaceX orbital launches
current record: Starlink-30/Group 2-1 -> Inspiration 4; 44h 07 m

2. Shortest time between two SpaceX orbital launches from the same coast
current record: Starlink-21/V1.0 L20 -> Starlink-22/V1.0 L21; 73h 48m
GO for launch, GO for age of reflight

Do we have a source on which booster this is? I've seen a few scattered images of boosters on roads but no one has said anything that shows those  boosters on roads were for this launch.
LEO is the ocean, not an island (let alone a continent). We create cruise liners to ride the oceans, not artificial islands in the middle of them. We need a physical place, which has physical resources, to make our future out there.

Based on the amount of soot seen in the shared image, I think it's B1058.
Launches Seen: Atlas V OA-7, Falcon 9 Starlink 6-4, Falcon 9 CRS-28,

What SFN photo? It's really annoying when people do this and don't actually link to anything. SFN has dozens of photos of lots of things. Nothing in this thread linked thus far shows the meatball. I specifically asked for a source, not your personal opinion.

Edit: The above was written before the post had a photo.

Thank you for editing your post, however I can't see any meatball in that photo.

Even with you circling it I'm not seeing anything there that's even slightly different colored than the surroundings. I think you are seeing things.

Falcon 9 went horizontal on SLC-40. No word from SpaceX yet on if that means a delay is in store. Launch of a Starlink batch was scheduled for Friday morning.

I think RocketLover0119 has some pretty sharp eyes.  At least he's got me seeing something there.  Just a minor photo-enhance of the first picture, the other one is taken from SpaceX's twitter.
