That sounds like the modern day equivalent of "The Groom of the Stool".

Should be better view for you, bit low here, ISS about just before 10.15 followed a few minutes later by the Crew Dragon.

It's worth thinking about: the cheapest commercial launch system in the world is also rated for human spaceflight, and it is partially reusable. Falcon 9 is really one of the most remarkable rockets in the history of the space age.

Text book launch. Fantastic.   First stage  landed on the platform.
Got to admit , they did this very well.  Those two guys on board must have a squeaky bum time
knowing a test launch earlier had exploded.  
Back to la Lune soon, then the Red Planet.  Might yet realise a boyhood dream of man on another planet.

I think pass 2 will be too low for me.

Heavens Above has gone down too!

Next time put the audio from the launch pad. Not studio. Much nicer.

I was thinking that those two astronauts must have felt good sitting in a spacecraft that looked like a real spaceship (those big blue screens, the futuristic lines) and they were dressed to kill in those stylish space suits!

I suspect we will have the conspiracy theorists piping up soon about the video going off just when the F9 landed. 

I thoroughly enjoyed every single second of that.
