did they get it perfect?

Looked like a very good launch for SpaceX.


Lift off.

Clearing the lightning towers.

Under the clouds.

We're onboard now. Nominal first stage burn.

Second stage engine ignition. The first stage is drifting away in the background. It is not red... That's the flame from the foreground engine.

Second stage burn complete. Engine shutdown. In orbit.

Dragon sep! You can see the cowling over the solar arrays. They are normally deployed a couple of minutes after separation.

Heading for a docking tomorrow!
