I saw this announcement last night on the Space News website – SpaceX has two Starship prototypes on the pad at the same time: https://www.space.com/spacex-starships-sn9-sn10-on-pad-same-time. Worth a read if you are into things space-related. There is a photo in the link. Slightly longer article, but here’s some basic information.

Behold, Starships SN9 and SN10
It looks like a scene from science fiction: Two gleaming silver rocket ships standing side-by-side under the Texas sun awaiting their turn to fly.
But the shiny, finned SpaceX rockets — Starship SN9 and SN10 prototypes — actually exist and met at the pad for the first time Friday (Jan. 29) at the company’s South Texas facility near Boca Chica Village. The SN10 vehicle, SpaceX’s latest in a line of new reusable Starship prototypes, rolled out to the pad as its SN9 counterpart awaits its own test flight, which could launch as soon as Monday (Feb. 1).
“Starship SN9 & SN10,” SpaceX CEO Elon Musk wrote on Twitter Friday as he shared a view of the two suborbital rockets. Video cameras from the tourist site Spadre.com and others also caught the view, including this close-up from NASASpaceflight.com.
