CelesTrak has @18SPCS TLEs with IDs for the 46 #Starlink Group 4-11 satellites and 4 pieces of debris. Catalog Numbers have been updated in the Starlink SupTLEs, as well.

CelesTrak has ephemeris-based SupTLEs for all 50 #Starlink Group 4-11 satellites launched on Feb 25 at 1712 UTC from Vandenberg SFB. STARLINK-3596 is currently leading the pack, for pass visualization purposes:

During the webcast it was said that it was the third flight for both fairing halves (with no more details about specific flights).

I think it hasn't been mentioned in this thread yet.

Yeah, the active half is from NROL-108 and Starlink 2-1, but there weren't any good views of the passive half, so I don't think it can be identified with certainty.

Booster 1063.4 sits atop OCISLY at an unusually vacant Port of Long Beach this afternoon after returning from its Starlink mission from Vandenberg SFB.

CelesTrak has @18SPCS TLEs for 25 of the 50 #Starlink Group 4-11 satellites launched on Feb 25. We expect the remainder soon and IDs to follow shortly thereafter.

Forgot to capture the launches page for this one, so I retrieved the old html from archive.org into the spacex website and pasted the top portion from 4-9 (I guess the image was the same, a certain Nighttime_Starlink_Fairing_DESKTOP.jpg)

The text should be correct tho.

Satellite imagery shows that SpaceX has only just removed B1063 from OCISLY following its flight on February 23rd.

Look closely at the second picture and you can see the booster vertical and its transporter waiting next to it.
