Apart from a single vessel (you can probably guess which), the Suez canal is empty. There are plenty of vessels queuing.
Why? Is it closed for travel?

@jcaron seems to be on point.
The canal operates using a convoy system: A southbound staring at 03:30 and a northbound starting at 04:00.
So at 03:30 the canal is likely to be empty, and looking at the canal later confirms you can travel through it.
