The TLI burn from the ground would be great.  Does anyone know where a link to any of the TLI's might be?  The only one that I have seen is http://pages.astronomy.ua.edu/keel/space/apollo.html  and there are only a couple of the TLI itself.  I know they were over the Pacific normally and not too many people have telescopes on the water.

I didn't see any of the Apollo TLIs, but we did see the TMI (Trans Mars Injection?) burn of the Falcon 9 Heavy last year. That was fun. I'm sure the Saturn V TLIs were even more impressive.

The footage in the A11 documentary is only a few seconds long, but it does show the SIVB light up.  Looked like they had trouble tracking right after that.

Well they had to get it somewhere.

Ah, now I understand what you're asking.  I'm guessing this is from the same source as the wide-angle launch view (the 69mm film that was never used until now).
