Heard about this mission for awhile,…did not realize it was going to be on a SpaceX rocket, nor that it was going to be out of Vandenberg.

And, with that, Booster 1063.3 becomes 1063.4... (they "level up" on landing...)

And the DART probe is headed outbound at about 39600 km/h... Stage 2 will jettison in about 20 minutes. The second stage will probably go into a long elliptical orbit of the Earth, and de-orbit in a few weeks (that's a guess on my part based on the trajectory of DART).

Did it land? The stream was ambiguous on the landing.

The booster?
Yup! They showed a still image a while later... It is upright, and just a bit off-center of the drone ship.
