Amazing the details cameras pick up these days. Notice the group of individuals, perhaps leaving to go to the pub, with one solitary person left behind behind looking board and playing on their mobile.

The images of the payload stack show (at least) 3 dummy payloads (2 larger identical cube shaped and a smaller one on the left side). Apparently there were some satellites de-manifested from this launch.
