SpaceX Rocket Seen Across California

Used SpaceX Rocket to Launch Satellite Try Historic Landing Tonight Watch Live

The rocket launched the SAOCOM 1A satellite into orbit and then the rocket landed back on the west coast.

The Union-Tribune was soon flooded with photos that came in from such places as San Diego International Airport, Point Loma Nazarene University, Otay Ranch in Chula Vista, the coastal area of Encinitas, and from people in Tijuana.

Perhaps even more jaw-dropping than the Iridium-4 spectacle that caused quasi-hysteria throughout much of California, Falcon 9 B1048 and its upper stage companion created an extraordinary show as the booster the booster separated, flipped 180 degrees, and began its boostback burn directly into the plume of S2's Merlin Vacuum engine.

It will be SpaceX's first time trying to land one of its reusable rockets on the West Coast.

Known as plume interaction, the phenomena has been known to produce extraordinary visual effects and the launch of SAOCOM 1A was certainly no exception. There's no specified launch window, and that could force SpaceX to move liftoff to October 11th if it has to scrub the launch on the 7th.

Meghan Markle delighted when fan praises her mom Doria Ragland
The Duke and Duchess married on May 19th, 2018 in Windsor and were conferred The Duke & Duchess of Sussex by The Queen. Prince Harry and Meghan were a huge hit in Sussex today during their first visit as Duke and Duchess.

In keeping with that vision, tonight marked the second flight for this particular Falcon 9 first stage, which also helped loft 10 Iridium Next commercial communications satellites from Vandenberg on July 25. Elon Musk's company had leased a former Titan rocket launch site in 2015 to build its own landing pad, but it it hasn't received clearance.

If anything goes wrong during the launch and landing, there is a risk of explosion.

SAOCOM-1A's radar measurements will track soil-moisture levels, thereby aiding forecasts of crop yields.

Viewers took to social media to speculate on the rocket, which was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base, which is about 130 miles northwest of Los Angeles. CONAE will operate the satellite as part of the Argentine-Italian System of Satellites with the Italian Space Agency, coordinating observations with Italy's four Cosmo-Skymed X-band SAR satellites. Flying both satellite constellations along the same orbit supports a rapid response by providing radar readings in emergency situations.

"SAOCOM" is short for "Satélite Argentino de Observación Con Microondas", which is Spanish for "Argentine Microwave-Observation Satellite".
