🎉🎉🎉 Happy Birthday Poppy 🎊🎊🎊 Wish you all the best
I created a GIF time-lapse of the entire CRS-13 launch and landing today-- including liftoff, stage separation, both burns, and the successful landing back at Landing Zone 1.
The time-lapse was taken with a Nikon D7100 and Nikkor 200-500mm lens. The images gradually crop tighter and then pan back out to show the most detail possible from the entire duration. (164 images, cropped and aligned by hand-- the reason for some shake across frames)
Day 349/365: Falcon 9 during its final seconds of descent back to Landing Zone 1 -- SpaceX added another successful launch and landing to the books this morning. Minimal clouds and sunshine made for a crystal-clear view of the entire duration from liftoff until the first stage touched back down on the Space Coast. @johnkrausphotos and I took quick trip up to Cape Canaveral for an excellent view and photo opportunity. Make sure you check out his image as well!
