New SpaceX landing photos make you feel like the rocket is coming down on top of you

Up until now, we've really only seen SpaceX's rocket landing in the middle of the ocean from afar. Chase planes near the drone ship provided a spectacular view of the milestone event, but now, SpaceX has released up-close pictures of the landing taken from the ship itself.

If you want to feel like a rocket is about to land on your head, these pictures will do the trick.
