Top left leg looked wobbly before cut out.
EDIT: some background noises from the audience
EDIT2: but, confirmation nevertheless!

To be precise, the background noises (ooohs and aaahs) were heard after the video cut.  Also what we saw on video did not warrant oohs and aaahs.  Conclusion - they saw the fun parts, or some data that we don't see.

It was confirmed that first stage landed. Hopefully, video will be reestablished for confirmation.

It was already confirmed...
Sooner or later we'll find out if it's one of those perma-tilt hard landings or not.

Go Falcon 9!

The Korea Pathfinder Lunar Orbiter satellite is making its way to the moon!

Not only was this the 2nd Cape launch of the day, but SpaceX alone is averaging a launch every 6.29 days. That is seriously impressive!

Definitely the top left leg deploy had a bounce to it, and we know the rocket ended up off center.

Could have been a bounce after touch down, or could have been that the odd deploy had something to do with last-second guidance.

There you have it. The 168th #Falcon9 since 2010, as @SpaceX launches its 34th of the year and the 6th flight total for B1052 (4 flights this year!) #KPLO ..
