 Hard to tell from recorded audio, but it was a detonation type crack, like SN4, not the normal Bleve type sound.
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

Fog clearing enough now to see SN11 debris everywhere. Clear shot from LabPadre Discord.

Cars heading to pad.

Another report of lightweight debris potentially from SN11 at Isla Blanca Park.

Could I interest you in some clean burning sub-cooled propalox and propalox accessories?
Forget drinking ethanol meant for rocket fuel, propÆne is the eutectic fuel mixture you can huff!

More SN11 debris. (The shipping container is where LabPadre's Pad Cam is. NSF's and EDA's cameras were just beside it)

From my contacts at KSC.
Two engines failed to relight for flip, vehicle was out of proper position for landing, Flight Termination System self activated.

Pad cam has been readjusted to give a better view of the debris field. Workers in hardhats and some random guy inspecting.

I thought this had already been posted - from the NWS - Brownsville/Rio Grande Valley Facebook page. The SN11 RUD and resultant vapor trail was captured on Doppler radar.

Debris behind pad cam. (Note the big piece of SN11's skirt obscured by the banner)

Group of people around the debris of what looks like a Raptor.

My contacts at SpaceX are saying something very similar. AFTS terminated the vehicle due to vehicle moving out of the allowed corridor for relight and landing. AFTS triggered several hundreds of feet above ground level.

This appears to be a different debris hotline than what SpaceX previously established coordinated with NASA and other agencies for CRS-7. The email is the same "recovery" email, but the phone number is different.

LEO is the ocean, not an island (let alone a continent). We create cruise liners to ride the oceans, not artificial islands in the middle of them. We need a physical place, which has physical resources, to make our future out there.

The FAA says SpaceX is leading the mishap investigation into SN11's landing sequence explosion this morning and that it's working with the company "to identify whether reports of light debris in the area is related to the mishap or other phases of the flight."
