ArabSat6a Falcon Heavy by SpaceX
This image is a blatant rip off of Michael Galindo's cool series showing the exact manuever shown here. He and I were shooting within feet of each other, so even the camera angles are similar. But, when I saw his excellent series, I was reminded of just how magical it was to watch the #SpaceX #ArabSat6a #FalconHeavy. In particular, this roll maneuver was so pleasing because, from the KSC Press Site (from where I was watching; thank you, again, Emilee for letting me onto your roof), you're sort of looking at the edge of the rocket, missing much of the novelty of the 3-cored rocket.
That's where the roll comes in: 15-seconds into the flight (first frame) the rocket begins to roll, and 21-seconds later, all three cores came beautifully into view (including the ArabSat logo on the fairing, faintly).
It was so cool to watch through a 500mm lens (thank you, John) and when the roll had completed, I may have said "thank you" out loud.
