Some observers have even reported seeing the re-entry of the Falcon 9 rocket as it landed on the SpaceX drone. Of course, I still love you about 350 miles (600 km) into the Atlantic Ocean. You can see some of these incredible launch views from the photographers and viewers who shared the view on Twitter below.

Space.com contributor Amy Thompson captured this view of the launch from an observation site near Cape Canaveral Air Force station just after takeoff from Falcon 9. She described the view as ” nebula suspended in the sky ”after the Falcon 9 headed for orbit.

The launch of SpaceX Falcon 9 on Saturday was the ninth mission to launch dozens of Starlink Internet satellites at the same time that the company is building a mega-constellation in orbit. Satellites are designed to provide broadband Internet access everywhere on Earth, especially in remote and underserved areas.
The launch of the Falcon 9 was the second of three commercial launches on Saturday.
About four hours earlier, a Rocket Lab Electron booster launched five small satellites into orbit from a pad on the Mahia peninsula in New Zealand. Then, almost 11 hours later, the Japanese start-up Interstellar Technologies attempted to launch its Momo-F5 sounding rocket from the city of Taiki, Hokkaido, but this mission failed to reach the suborbital space.
