    I drove up to the port this morning to take some pics of the first stage ad the ASDS came into port early this morning.
    Enjoy!

    Very cool -- thanks for sharing. Don't get a sense of the size of the rocket from the aerial pics, so I like to see the people standing next to it in your picture.

    Yeah, I drove up and was amazed how tall it was. There's a few launch albums in there if you want to see what a launch looks like from the beach here on the Space Coast. It never gets old ;)

    Nick, thanks for the great photos! I love the close up of the base with people standing on the deck of the droneship. It shows just how enormous the Falcon 9 landing legs are.
