My brother got this pic from his front yard tonight.
He got a photo of another launch (satellite) a couple days ago.
Three years ago we had a "Whattheheck is THAT?!" moment here in Phoenix. You don't expect to see space launches around here, but for this Falcon 9 launch from Vandenberg CA (500 miles away), the sunlight was just right. It appeared to be slowly descending behind a nearby mountain range, when it was actually following the curvature of the earth southbound as it was reaching orbit.
Cool photos. Watched the launch.
Didn’t even realize until tonight that Karen didn’t know the Falcon flies back to the barge or the launch site. She just doesn’t track these things.
She was here watching also, and was impressed.
I promised to gather up some of the more um... spectacular arrivals ... when they were still sorting that all out, and make a little playlist for her. Kaboom. LOL.
We always joke when watching this stuff... way back to Shuttle... that when I have a bad engineering day, nobody dies.
Those engineers have a bad day...
I mean yeah, I can kill an entire company or six with a mistake, and we all don’t have jobs anymore... but I can’t directly kill anybody.
SCE to Aux, kids. Just be that good at what you do, and it’ll all go well...
