Space X Falcon launch

Space X launched a Falcon 9 rocket on Sunday night 10/7/2018. They had a one second launch window and not only did it go but they landed the first stage back on a pad (LZ4) that is next to the launch pad in California. This is a time exposure picture from Space X, which I enlarged in Gigapixel then ran through AI clear.

Drat! Wish I’d known about that. Even w/o time lapse they’re pretty spectacular. Thanks for the posting, certainly.

Here is a Youtube video on a Vandenburg, CA launch of a Space X Falcon 9 in December 2017. It creates a spectacular light show at higher altitude. https://youtu.be/JRzZl_nq6fk
