In footage captured last night, published by the news site, a curious young girl can be heard asking her, ‘is it burning helium balloon or the spacecraft?’

Harvard-based astrophysicist Jonathan McDowell tweeted: “So still waiting for Space Force confirmation, but indications are (with low to moderate confidence) the rocket probably came down somewhere over the Indian Ocean.”

Space-Track, which has been providing tracking throughout the fall of the rocket has said it is down, tweeting: “Everyone else following the #LongMarch5B re-entry can relax. The rocket is down. You can see all relevant information and updates here on Twitter/Facebook, so there is no need to keep visiting the space-track dot org website.”
