‘This Won’t be Subtle’: SpaceX West Coast Launch to Create Large Sonic Boom
09 October, 2018, 17:13
The twilight launch created a spectacular sight in the night sky for spectators in Southern California, who took to Twitter to share their unbelievable photos.
People as far away as San Francisco, Sacramento, Phoenix and Reno, Nevada, posted photos of the Falcon 9 rocket's launch and return on Sunday night.
But, no need to fear.
SpaceX's seventeenth launch in 2018 was a success, also signifying the first land landing on the United States' west coast.
SpaceX successfully launched a satellite to space from Vandenberg Air Force Base in Santa Barbara County Sunday - and then they stuck the landing.
The primary objective of the mission was to place the SAOCOM 1A satellite into space, but SpaceX also wanted to expand its recovery of first-stage boosters to its launch site at Vandenberg Air Force Base, about 130 miles north-west of Los Angeles.
Still, Vandenberg Air Force Base had warned residents last week in nearby Lompoc and other Central California cities that they could hear "one or more" sonic booms associated with the landing of the first-stage booster.
SpaceX used the same first stage for the Saocom-1A mission that launched 10 satellites for Iridium about 10-and-a-half weeks ago, also from Vandenberg.
"Nope, definitely not aliens, "Garcetti wrote on Twitter as he posted an incredible photo". The satellite was launched on a Falcon 9 rocket, deployed about 12 minutes after liftoff, and delivered to Low Earth Orbit (LEO). The launch marked the 30th successful landing of a rocket booster, according to the company.
"SAOCOM" is short for "Satélite Argentino de Observación Con Microondas", which is Spanish for "Argentine Microwave-Observation Satellite".
