    SpaceX launch viewed from SWFL

    Pretty cool this morning watching the second SpaceX Dragon capsule take off for the ISS. This is the view from Port Charlotte looking toward Cape Canaveral, a couple of hundred miles away. The Falcon 9 rocket appears after 10km altitude at Mach 1+. The first part is just me filming my iPad screen propped up on the windshield then panning over when the rocket becomes visible to the naked eye here.

    A short while later, the reusable first stage of the rocket separated and eventually lands successfully on the "Of Course I Still Love You" barge in the Atlantic. Note that the rocket no longer appears to be rising in the horizon from my view because it is actually way over the Atlantic, speeding away east.
