Where are you getting that from?

SpaceX's very poor website is still saying 7:30pm PDT (0230z)

That is the latest from SpaceFlightNow too.

Very reliable sources state current estimated launch time is 8:00. I'll update if this changes.

Looks like he's right, 7:28 and no video feed. A bit slow on the web updates today.

The website is not up to date probably due to SpaceX staff being busy with launch preparations. Hopefully it will be updated soon.

Actually a bit slow on their web updates always. I wrote them a "you are frustrating your audience-o-gram" today.

Met still thinks weather will be "red" at current planned launch. Expect "green" later. New launch plan at 35 mins past the hour,

weather doesn't look good
...or bad.

Pacific tropical squalls are frequent, but brief. Unlike Florida, where the can be pure evil!

Weather brief at 3:15 local, (11:20 EDT, 8:20 pm PDT) If GREEN anticipated, will pick up count at 3:20 local, for 3:35 T-0?

T-7 min

I assume they have an on-board camera?

This should be spectacular as they bust through that convective overcast. Get ready for some speed!
