Best view ever of second stage. And even attitude control on the first stage after separation. Just wow!

Best launch I've ever seen, and I've been here 50 years.

Spectacular pulsing plumes from the Inspiration4 rocket

I've been watching rocket launches since 1959 and never have seen anything like it. I always like to see the launches about an hour after sunset as they are spectacular. The first one I remember was a Delta launch in the mid 60s and it has stuck with me my entire life. The diaphanous "cloud" was spectacular on that clear, star lit night (back when you had starlit nights around here. There are too many street lights now.) When I first saw the pulsing, I thought there had been an accident, but, finally guessed that they were the boosters firing positioning engines in a pulse. Correct?

Yes, attitude control for the first stage return. And they landed it. Pretty dang sweet.
