I shot the launch from Playalinda Beach, which is about 3.5 miles from Launchpad 39A. This was the first launch I have witnessed. It was a very cool experience.

Never seen a launch in person, I'm very envious. Great shots.

Excellent set!

Can you explain number 4?
Looks like 2 rockets in scene.

It's two of the three jettisoned boosters coming back to land, they are re-useable and those two are the outer cores which successfully landed together.

The middle core had an engine malfunction, missed it's landing vessel and crashed into the sea nearby, probably lucky it missed as debris from it's demise several hundred feet away still managed to damage the ship.
