Just thought y'all would like this video of the spiral over Australia caused by the Falcon 9 second stage booster. This really shows you the motion of the spin, as well as the bulk motion of the object across the sky; it moves just as you'd expect something in orbit to move. Shocking, I know.


Apparently, a lot of people saw it; Aussies must be early risers. Man, I'd love to see something like this. So cool.
