SpaceX prepares Starship SN8 prototype for high-altitude test flight

In September 2019, Elon Musk said he hoped SpaceX could orbitally test its Starship vehicle within six months, and while it did not, the company appears to be ready to do a high altitude flight test. In a tweet, the managing director announced that the latest prototype, called the SN8, had suffered a successful static fire and that a flight test at an altitude of around 15 km could take place next week.
The folks at NASASpaceflight streamed a live streaming video of the triple Raptor engine and posted a clip of the event on Twitter. Based on notices to locals in the area, they report that November 30th is a likely date for the test. So keep an eye out - you may find that the “flying water tower” is taller than ever.
