And the visibility of it for us is FAQ #1 today.  See first page of thread please.
PSA #1: EST does NOT mean "Eastern Time".  Use "Eastern" or "ET" instead, all year round, and avoid this common error.  Google "EST vs EDT".
PSA #2: It's and its: know the difference and quietly impress grammar pedants.  Google "angry flower its" .

Dragon smoothly undocked, moved out, released and on its way home.

Been moving posts for those who can't read simple instructions. From this point onwards, those posts not belonging in here will be deleted as we won't have time to move posts around.

This an update thread. People are coming here for updates, not "I have a question, why is Dragon white??" :D And "Woooooooooooooooopeeeeeeee, Go SpaceX ;D"

The first one can go in the C2+ Discussion thread. The latter can go in the Party thread.

Don't make me get the big stick out. ;)
