I didn't get to watch the feed live, but Youtube to the rescue. Holy cow, I don't think that'll ever get old!

That video is amazing. At 3:00 the view from the second stage looking back as the first stage turns and burns is simply epic.

I'm actually concerned about the debris seen at 6:19 in the video. Big chunk of something fell off.

Right now, Dragon is preparing to leave the stations.
