You know it's going to happen here or someplace else..

Some awakened mind is going to claim its a ufo, angel, earthquake lights or some other silliness even though it's been called out prior to launch.

The launch was after sunset. The rocket rose high enough to be in sunlight again. As the sun rose above the rocket's horizon, its light (coming through the atmosphere) was the orange that we usually see at dawn or sunset. As it rose higher, the sunlight was no longer passing through the lower muck, and thus illuminated the exhaust with bright white light.

My colleague Marco Langbroek has documented how the Falcon-9 stage-2 deorbit burn was accidentally observed in Europe [Holland and Germany].

Cloud-cover imagery suggests that some regions of Norway and Finland may have been able to see it directly overhead but no reports have come in yet.

A previous deorbit burn WAS observed in Norway, here

An hour after launch, the second stage made a brief rocket firing to deorbit, just off the coast of Norway. Reports have come in from Belgium, Netherlands, and Germany. POSSIBLE viewing areas pre-sunrise Monday include Finland, NW Russia, British Isles, Iceland, and commercial air traffic over the North Sea. The apparition would have been a bright cloud for about a minute followed by a 2-second burst ['headlight'] forward of its motion, then quickly fading. visibility capability??
