HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (WAVY) – If you’re on the east coast, you might have caught a glimpse of a tiny bright spot flying across the sky Saturday night. It was SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket!
According to Space Flight Now, the almost 230-foot-tall rocket lifted off from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida on Saturday evening and was carrying 52 new Starlink satellites to orbit.
10 On Your Side compiled a gallery of some viewer photos of the rocket soaring through the sky:
This is the 41st launch from Florida this year.
