There is no telemetry capability on the third stage, launch success will be confirmed by the satellite signal received 1st AOS at 90 min. after launch. Press conference will be held at 3 hours later.
Third stage has GPS navigation capability, these data are transmitted to the ground station via iridium satellite. But, there is no confirmation for satellite separation.

I believe the rocket is behind the building in the middle.

Nice rocket views. You can see the building blocking the view at the left.
