During the Sunday orbital commute (channelling Rob Navias) we can post videos of the Dragon pass over the UK (and other places) last night. Some amazing videos on Youtube.

You summoned a video! Dragon passing over UK - and the second stage & solar panel covers photobombing along the way. Not my video, but best one I've seen.

Dragon Resupply Mission (CRS-11) passing over Oxfordshire 22 minutes after launch from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center Florida. The two light in the middle are the Dragon capsule and the second stage, the two lights on either side are the discarded protective fairings tumbling away from the craft. Look for a thruster correction burst at 1min 12sec.
