Source of the post Cool. What was the sound like?

Thanks for reminding me. Here's a link to the audio recordings I made: https://www.reddit.com/r/spacex/comment ... d/dtvv1c4/

Make sure you are using audio equipment that can reproduce low frequencies very well, and play it fairly loud for the full effect.

My headphones did no justice to that clip. :/

I ran the video below on my TV with my earthquake subwoofer.  It was quite nice (but things in my living room start to rattle so much, so I had to keep it down somewhat).  If I get a chance to see a launch, I think I would mainly be there for the sound.

Yeah, I think Falcon Heavy has a cooler sound than the Space Shuttle. I'd be there just to hear it too.

People all over northern Norway reported a strange light this evening.  Apparently it was the launch of Falcon 9.  A couple of our meteor cameras recorded it.  I'll make a video.

EDIT: The video:

Using this footage as well as similar footage from Finland, the velocity comes out as 7.8 km/s and the height around 530 km.

New SpaceX video of the Falcon Heavy launch. Includes footage of the core crashing into the ocean near the drone ship!
