I just came in I could barely see the burners anymore. I am 60 miles away and you can still hear the rumble.

I know it has a 3D printer going up to the ISS, plus some weather monitoring equipment and a bone density scanner. There's a couple small satellites that will be deployed from the ISS later on with some new equpment that is also on this flight. I think the rest is about 1,500 lbs of cloths, food, and general stuff to re-supply the people working there.

So yes, there should be some toilet paper and Doritoes in with the re-supply packages.

Just caught the first stage separation and second stage ignition.

It's incredible how the engine nozzle gets white-hot from the exhaust.

Did it launch? To me it says that it is 6 hours, what does it mean? Was it flying for 6 hours already.

The coolest thing about that coverage is that they installed a camera inside the spacecraft's fuel tank! You can see fragments of the footage during the powered journey to orbit, and then the fuel starting to splash and float in zero g as the main engine was cut off.

There was something about that launch that was much more effortless and graceful than the space shuttle. Maybe cuz its lighter.

Very nice. Here were my humble shots. I ended up choosing to forgo my telescope and just used my telephoto lens as there was a rain cell up in Daytona that could have hypothetically reached me after the launch before I could pack it up. Although it ended up being a non-factor, I'm always erring on the side of extreme caution where my equipment is concerned.
