Been watching it. Looks like a hohum mission. Gotta love the technology and some of the terminology - love approach ellipsoid.  🙂

It was pretty exciting to watch since it will be landing right here near👽 Pensacola! That don't happen very often in your lifetime.

Well, it would be exciting if they would actually show some footage of it rather than the commentators chatting over a view of mission control... :dry: Heck, even if there was a view out of the window of Crew Dragon before the communications blackout...

Interesting to note that some private civilian boats came over for a look-see.. Back in the Apollo days, practically the entire 6th Fleet would have cordoned off the area  :biggrin:
