Yeah, I am no radio guru at all, but I would imagine picking up signals that close with some of the deep space network radio dishes (when they are designed for picking up signals many, many millions of miles away) had to be akin to someone sticking a bullhorn up to your ear and saying “HELLO THERE!!!”.

Well, this is a cool liftoff shot of a type you don’t see often. Must have had a heavy filter on the camera to cut back the blinding white glare of the raw exhaust plume.

From the Mars Rover launch yesterday morning.

I have an image of the Falcon 9 Heavy that was made just like that. It's one of my rotating wallpapers.

I do recall a similar shot being posted on the forum before; don’t know if it was the same one you are referencing, but it had a very similar look. Just a different booster.

That really is a blazing inferno; it is hard to imagine any materials holding up to such as that, but obviously there are materials that do.

Here is the Falcon Heavy shot. It's a tad big to do an inline image. It's a landscape shot so its a little better for wallpaper.

In case anyone is wondering how it was shot, here are the image properties. It was an Eos 60D at 1/8000s and f/14.

I don’t think that is the earlier one that I recall, but that one may be even more impressive! If the fires of Hades are anything like that, woe to the ‘unbelievers’! (Ok...apologies to any religious offenses that might be perceived...none are intended).

If you do a google search, there are several variations of the image with different focal lengths showing more booster, different exposures for brigher/darker images, different camera angles, etc. Pick out the one you like.
