All still very quiet on the LD loop.  Fueling is going well.  No issues are being worked.

Good morning Falcon 9 and your secretive passenger. Remember, coverage won't be to S/C Sep. SpaceX or NRO will confirm good launch. So no notes of congrats until then. SpaceX or NRO will be the first to say anything. No one else will hear in advance.
