SpaceX Falcon 9 Launch from Vandenburg, AFB

February 25, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

This morning at 0912 hrs, SpaceX launched yet another Falcon 9 rocket carrying some more Starlink satellites into orbit. These were shot from the backyard in Ojai, CA looking west with my Nikon D500 + 200-500 F/5.6 lens, handheld. I had heard yesterday on the radio that NASA is concerned about so many of these satellites being placed into orbit as it increases the odds of collision with other object up there. At any rate, the launch was really cool and I was so glad I was able to see it in broad daylight. The bonus was hearing what I think was a sonic boom after I went back into the house. Not sure if that was one of the boosters making its way back down or the actual rocket generating it from way way up there.
