I have seen a few of the SpaceX launches from our villa in Hemingway. Today’s launch was by far the most impressive and longest lasting viewing I’ve seen. It was visible 3-5 minutes compared to .5 -.8 min. Trail was visible up to 30 minutes.

Was the wind and the big bow was the upper level winds. If malfunctions after the boosters were gone.

That was the most awesome launch I've seen in the 5 years we've been here. I walked across the street to Southern Star and had a great view.
