Traffic on the way to KSC freaked me out
Hello VAB
This definitely isn't commentary on the SLS. Nope
There she is.. Falcon Heavy
Our viewing site was at the Turn Basin, right outside the VAB. Thanks to Jeff with the awesome access!
The SLS launch platform. It's only leaning a little.
Me with blurry Falcon Heavy!
Blurry me with Falcon Heavy!
Joe managed to get past the security.. rope. Joe goes where he wants
And there he goes! Joe just walks across the moat thing and onto the Saturn Crawlerway. No one stopped him because they were too baffled
I bought a much needed water here
Falcon Heavy!
That's a fine looking launch vehicle
Jeff and his grandfather!
James loves rockets
I should've parked right in front of the rope. Oh well. We had some company!
A panorama aronud our viewing site
This guy has a longer telephoto than me
The heat haze is a little frustrating but we're SO close. Just under 3 miles
Dan's first rocket launch! Well, hopefully the first one that actually launches
Spaaaaace
VAB!
Stay cool in the sun!
Jeff is Mr. KSC these days. Very cool
The Launch Control Center
Another identical picture of Falcon Heavy on the launch pad
The side of the VAB
Upper level winds keep pushing the launch.. let's play cards!
Dan taught me how to play Gin Rummy
We played on the grass
This was my view when laying in the field
Is it time to launch yet?
Dan doesn't want to have a second scrub
Helicopter! Note the vortex coming off the blade tip
I've heard this book is good!
Boeing in the old OPF
People with some good views on the LCC steps
Trying new shots
Falcon Heavyyyy
How do I get on the LCC roof?
We have venting!
Are you topping off the oxygen after the venting?
Black and white makes things cool
Are you sick of Falcon Heavy photos yet?
How about a wide shot?
How about a picture of Dan taking a picture?
Tactical Guy is ready for a launch
A lot of venting on the right!
It's launching!!
It's actually going!
Almost cleared the tower
The plume is so bright
Falcon Heavy has cleared the tower!
Go baby go
Let's try some more creative filters!
You can clearly see how the center core is throttled down a bit
Passing through the clouds
Up and up and up
The crowd went nuts
It's starting to tilt over
There's the cnotrail
Take that, upper level winds
It's really pitching now
You can see the plume expanding as the pressure drops
The contrail left a neat shadow
Side core separation!
This highly processed photo was the most visible I could make the boost back burn. You can see three plumes at once here!
Meanwhile, the steam from the sound suppression system is drifting away
Entry burn! I managed to capture it through the clouds. The side cores are slowing down to survive reentry
Landing burn!! You can see a green light near the engine plume of the upper core. That's a result of the engine startup sequence
That lower one is the same core I saw launch on the Thaicom-8 mission two years ago
It's so insane actually seeing this happen right in front of me, less than ten miles away
And they stuck the landing!
