The Space X Falcon Heavy (did I get that right?) was unlike any other launch I’d viewed. The majority of the smoke accumulated at the base of the launching pad in huge billows. The rocket itself left a contrail which seemed a bit less heavy than the space shuttles. But the one thing that was unique occurred when the rocket boosters returned to Earth and landed on the launching site. Really, the whole operation was in a class all its own.
Glad I was on the shoreline of Titusville, watching this event with Dan, who had new camera equipment that recorded the launch.
