My configuration is:
Cloudflare with proxied SSL + Nginx(reverse proxy) + Apache
The operating system my web server runs on is CentOS Linux release 7.9.2009 (Core)
In my case, I get a "503" response, while the site works as usual, while there are no entries in the access-logs and error-logs about requests from the IP address mentioned at certbot error log (2606:4700:3037::6815:10b8)
We aren't serving 503s during high load in production yet (that will be turned on later today, most likely). But I can tell this isn't being served by Let's Encrypt because the detailed error message ("During secondary validation...") is an error that Let's Encrypt returns from its API.
In this case though, it is in fact orbitaltoday.com that is serving a 503, not Let's Encrypt. Unfortunately I don't have any more information than what's already included in the error message. I've looked at our logs and I see you've obtained a cert again, so hopefully it was temporary and you can move on.
Perhaps Cloudflare has some logs that you can view, but I'm not sure about what they have available in their various products.
I am US West Coast (Oregon), I have Comcast Xfinity for an ISP.
And then I just tried this:
$ traceroute orbitaltoday.com

This is the interesting message from above Warning: orbitaltoday.com has multiple addresses
certainly not a bad thing but helpful for debugging.
Ah, I see. That would be a significant failure in the Cloudflare Edge servers to behave that way. I think that would be front page news
The 503's are almost certainly some kind of origin server misconfiguration or perhaps other security setting in the CDN. That's something best resolved by working with Cloudflare community (which I previously linked to).
