Possible Cháng'é 5 timeline (in UTC). From "Cosmic Penguin" on Twitter (scoll down a lot!).
https://twitter.com/Cosmic_Penguin/status/1...561964041388033

Launch: Mo Nov23 (today!) between 20:25 und 21:15
S/C sep: 30 Minutes later (already on the way to the Moon)
LOI: Sa Nov28 14:45
Landing: Su Nov29 20:30 (based on MCC screen shots during final rehearsal!)

No guarantee of course.

From an article by Sam McNeil in the Washington Post:

The China National Space Administration said in a statement that the Long March-5Y rocket began fueling up on Monday evening, ahead of a launch scheduled for between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. Tuesday (2000 and 2100 GMT Monday, 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. EST Monday) at the Wenchang launch center on the southern island province of Hainan.

Solar arrays deployed, the chinese are pretty confident on the mission, their biggest worry is a leak on the sample compartment.

"One of the Chinese space scientists’ biggest worries is that a tiny leak could cause the samples to burn and be lost in the atmosphere."
