  1. This is my first time watching a rocket go up at night. I saw the first stage take place it was awesome to see how it broke apart from the rocket. Like a bright light as it fell then when it got close to the ocean or wherever it landed it turned orange like a ball of fire. I really enjoyed watching the whole experience.
