Post links to your sources for pictures/video.  "reddit", "facebook", "the internet" are not specific enough.

And this is a good reminder that just because one of your fellow space enthusiasts occasionally voices doubts about the SpaceX schedule announcements or is cautious about believing SpaceX has licked a problem before actually seeing proof that's true, it doesn't mean they hate SpaceX.

Alerted by a tweet this morning, a three hour drive later, the view down Playalinda Beach is beautiful and impressive! Changing light with low clouds, but occasionally the sun would highlight the vehicle quite nicely! Nice to be in the right state to see it the day it first saw daylight!

Views from the Northeast, and a panorama of the pad. Visible are 39B's hydrogen sphere, 39A, The hangar, LC37, LC40s lightning towers, the removed launch deck plugs, and LC41's VIF.

A quick check of the coast reveals no #FalconHeavy on pad. Although up in the late night hours, it appears to possibly be back in the barn. Is it all good or adjustments needed? Nobody knows yet. @SpaceX
