___
Yes Im watching on youtube. (labpadre)
March 9 17:40 UTC
Its almost as if Elon be reading my blog, re cranes, lights, The black patches have now been rotated out of sight. I see several people on site. 1 mega crane. In the foregrond of mega crane is a extended cherry picker. Couple people in the bucket working midship left side. Moving to the right UIT appears the SN11 just dangling there lol. On the rigth is a steel rebar cylinder for an additional launch pad im guessing. Hard to asee whats going on under the Starship, but assuming some rocket engines getting installed. I see a concrete pile machine and steel basher or both on the right. Man that post pounder is lound I remember seeing one in MTL and in Vancouver in docks scenarios. Cool. HJere we go another cherry picker now working on the left visible bottom flap.
22 C, winds 22 mph. 35 kph. Just cherry pickers galore, I see 2 in foreground of crane. Theres different angles. Nice some good shots from launch pad cam. More entrance infrastructure. Should probably log a couple photos to be able to see the difference, its that im a student, not a reporter. Ill spend some extra curricular time is fine, I cant ignore my responsibilities. Finnaly, beach cam. wow theres parasols out, thats a stretch from the winter storm we seen.

Aeee its March 10 17:09 UTC. cherry picker at same place as yesterdays observations. the white crane however has turned around completyely isnt suspending SN11 anynore. I see another cherry picker at the base of the launchpad. Couple trucks, one concrete on the left side by the black tank farm. Reminds me gotta make stew huzzah. Wow can see far with sapphire cam. Some people riding the elevator at the starship factory vertical structure. A red van stops with hazards as Im observing. Wow lots of vehicles at the launch pad parking lot. Beach cam looks windy. People fishing.

March 12 14:49 UTC this looks live, foggy gray The road is closed, yet a couple underneath the SN11 in a scissor lift. Stioll some people on site so, the static fire could occur.Big crane just sittin there.
sapphire can still see pretty far, some clouds still. looks wet.
Sentinel there a cop there with the lights on road closed at the radio towers assembly. Yep couple vehicles got let through. One with trailer. Maybe its a part they need from trhe factory driving down last minute; special delivery ! lol. Launch pad not as many vehicles as last time. Just the sights and ligthts of this area. The way the lights have a certain aura around em
___
watching a space walk nasa. Just tuned in. Homeworkday lol.
March 13 1435 15:02.
foggy cranes, some activity. Maybe there will be a static fire soon, havent been paying too much attention. I just like to check in everyday for a few observations. Sapphire cam amazing its clear and the trailer park. Definetly found it at Isla Blanca checkin out the sights. That Pier 19 looks kinda fun. see a couple nose cones at the sentine cam
Construction at the launch pad like concretre and forklifts, back hoes. Beach cam looks amazing deep blues and that orange sand. Ignored a bit of spacewalk happening this morninng.

Oh Cranee suspended in the wind. White and blue crossed beams, ready to support weight, and pulley it up.
22 mph winds Theres a parking lot. Theres some clouds. Pavement ends, in more ways then one, or sometimes its only pavement. Facilities in construction. The labpadre and nasa chats are horrendous. youtube lives lol.
Sapphire cam thats a hit. Maybe 30 cars in a high up shot. Traffic circle type intersection.
Predator see some hot cars drive by lol, white hot.
Sentinel I see a cylynder now in tall building. Love that building. Elevator on the outside, its like scaffolding for the rocket assembly with what must be crane building. also that trianglular building is neat.
Beach cam, looks wet but clear little windy. Could chill there and read a book maybe.
___
March 17 16:51 UTC
seeing some new infrastructure on the right.
See the black ellipse 3/4 up midship.
2 cranes one post pounder, 34 cherry pickers. skidsteers. No road close today, but there was a SpaceX videos yesterday. RE: SN10
so the days go on.
Looks overcast sapphire ca, no winds.
Factory theres a stack in the vertical tent. couple nose coses.
Nice panning view at launch pad, still traffic not as many workers but still quite a few.
Beach cam so nice its bright today. Got your beach parasols depth looking at ocean.
Yea beach cam is my favorite Im one of the 18 people. 20 people.
the vehicles on the other side of the bay and fishing channel looks fun.
looks overcast.
Theres actually vehicles as far as you can see so some people be working forsure.

___ Marcgh 20th 13:13 utc
Its dawn. couple cranes in sight looking pretty quiet.
17:58 checkin in. 3 neat black patches on the rocket. People are out on the road ditch taking pictures. Theres people working on Saturday. I wanna see the rocket too. 1 person can fit like 2.5 peoples on a fingers and the rocket is 8 finger high.
person is like 1.7 m, x 2.5 oh yea the distance well. see how far off I am. 34 m high. 50m actual. So that must cover the distance person on road 0.7 cm. rocket 12 cm 4.16 m per cm, but apply that to the 0.6 cm person would make em 2.5m. There would be a way to calc the distance from road kinda tough. A person at the correct scale would have to be like 0.42 cm

_ March 22 2021 15:47 UTC, did I miss the static fire?
Yes I did early this morning 8:50 am local time, just watching the replay.
Gas be swirling.
Kicking up dust.
Ok cool looks like they did it.
Live now looks not super busy, 1 post pounder, 1 crane 1 cherry picker.
Beach cam thats my favorite, oranges and blues. People are chilling at the beach.

___

I saw a truck drive by can really see the scale.
Whoa theres some cool things going on at the factory seeing some yucca,. some jeep in safari action. The tall building has some cranes and things are going on . On thee righ there some nosecones, one in the middle holding a crane.
Saphire, orange parking lots, green greenery. Cars driving in the roudabout.
Sentinel, Oh the tall building is open. Crane is outside though, front obscured.
Infrastructure looks nice. Guess I should log a photo, Since its already changed so much. Cars up to the sign of workers.
Thertes the palm I see sometimes.
Surely Elon checks out the rockets

17:14 UTC 12.5 k people watching now, Including astronaut Chris Hadfield. All around awesome science badass.
So im thinking this might go down, there appears to be some light activity around the pad.
The hype is pretty cool.

___ March 27 14:12 UTC
Is today the day?, just some light activity but the pad mostly clear.
Seen 1 truck on the road go there and maybe back if it was same truck.

March 30th 00:13 – 00:33 mega foggy rainy maybe.
I like the glow in the fog. Very sci-fi.

___March 30th 13:45
Missed the launch.
Gotta say that was the most anti climactic launch ive ever not-seen.
So foggy cant see a thing, then when then thing ‘lands’ the camera froze.
Anywways well onto the next one!

_ Well thats sad its over, Elons twitter; At least the crater is in the right place. Thats pretty funny.
Cant be too attached to smoldering wrecks. Just a little sad after watching it for so long to be gone.

Maybe its a tesla at the front of convoy

_April 6 18:30 UTC
