Still waiting to hear how the core stage fared - but no matter what that was a monumental achievement. Farewell Starman, safe travels Space Roadster!

Could just see some lasting condensation among the cloud layer from my place.
Also, props to SpaceX for setting the car's GPS screen to display "DON'T PANIC".
