Who else was watching the Perseverance landing today? (February the eighth)

I watched the landing (NASA JPL during the landing) while making some new Tiny Whoop gates out of cardboard.

Here is the video of the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) during the landing:

I think more photos will start to arrive on earth sometime later, but for now the photos can be found here:

This is how I found out about the landing and this also gives a pretty good explanation of the decent and mission in general:

Those were indeed the "seven minutes of terror" or whatever....I watched the last three minutes on CNN ..pretty impressive for sure.
Looking forward to colored pictures in the days ahead.
