Pre-dawn SpaceX launch

My 11-year-old daughter watching the pre-dawn launch of a SpaceX rocket from Cape Canaveral, Fla. The cloud formation was created by the first stage and the ball of light mid-way between the cloud and the horizon is the second stage flying away from us over the Atlantic Ocean.
