    From Casa Grande, AZ. This is the best time to see a launch, right after sunset when the sun is backlighting the exhaust plume. The pictures don't do it justice.

    That looks awesome. I assume it launched from Vandenburg AFB?

    Yes. There are various rocket launch apps that will give you a heads-up when they might launch from different locations. The launches are often postponed for various reasons. The East Coast launches would be more difficult to see because of the humid climate having cloudy conditions more often. Also, there's the SpaceX launch facility near South Padre Island, Texas.
