At 0:44? Looks like wind was blowing from the right of the camera. It's not spinning, just flowing around the obstacle.

Yes, and you can see this better at about 1:00. Right after the astronaut speaks, there is a shot of the rocket high in the sky, and the vapor trail can be clearly seen flowing around the left side of the vehicle; to the right side, and then out and down to the left.
