Can confirm the sonic booms. You're going to hear those no matter how high they are as anyone who has been to a return-to-launch-site Falcon 9 or Falcon Heavy launch can attest to (the rocket booster "turns around" in the air at very high altitude to land back at the spaceport, creating a sonic boom).

And at 45,000 feet, the atmospheric distortion is too great to judge a distance of 10 or 20 feet, even if you had the best telephoto lens money can buy.
