As I nearly posted in the wrong thread, think it's worth pointing out that there's a separate Space Science section thread for TESS updates:

Hey @SouthwestAir , thank you for the excellent timing. During the rocket launch yesterday one of your flights approaching @MCO passed into frame.

Got my remote photos in.

Thanks to Mike Howard and Ryan Chylinski for picking them up after the unexpected delay to this morning.

Sped-up version of Core B1045's landing on OCISLY. Second time such video was released; first was Thaicom 8 in May 2016.

I was annoyed by the timelapse when a 6+ minute uninterrupted view was available, so I cut my own :) Perhaps the first fully uninterrupted view of S1 from MECO to landing.
