On Friday, SpaceX made history by performing its first successful ocean barge landing following a resupply mission to the ISS. Today, they released the photos.

Most of the images were captured by cameras aboard the barge, and they all show the fiery descent of the rocket as it approached and ultimately touched down successfully—an incredible scientific feat, that some might call visually beautiful as well:
