Check out my video of the Launch of SpaceX Falcon 9 v1.1 with CSA/MDA Cassiope as viewed from Vandenberg Air Force Base, West Ocean Avenue.



Available in various resolutions including 720p and 1080p HD
Turn up the volume to experience the Roar and Crackle, 4 to 5 mile travel-time delay.
Sorry for the length (6:30 minutes). I wanted to include the total experience and tell a story.
