    Curious what this is:
    I have seen this is most of the videos and have never been able to make sense of it. I can only assume it is a signal loss that makes this pop up, correct? But if that is the case, why do you still hear the ship's propulsion (at least while there is still atmosphere around it to make noise) when it goes to this screen?

    And perhaps someone can explain some of the other things going on with this screen. Specifically the circle with the rectangle in it and the circling red dot.

    Most of the other images make sense to me, just not this one.

    On the less confusing side I love how you can see what appears to be it breaking the sound barrier, and also the way the flames coming off the rocket starts to go wider and wider as it slowly loses atmosphere. I always enjoy watching these launches!
