This is a shot of the "fireball" anomaly that occured on Falcon 9 COTS Demo 1 Flight on Dec. 8th 2010. The 1.1 million lbs of thrust thrust from the Falcon 9 Merlin engines makes this "fireball" look like a match in the middle of a forest fire.

Elon Musk called it a "little fire" on the Post-Launch Press Conference.

Some think that this commentary indicates that I don't think this needs to be fixed. Of course it needs to be fixed. And it will.
