New SpaceX launch lights up Bermuda night skies
A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket created a spectacle for Bermuda after its launch from Cape Canaveral on Saturday night.
The spacecraft company said on its website: “On Saturday, September 24 at 7.32pm ET, SpaceX launched 52 Starlink satellites to low-Earth orbit from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.
“This was the fourth launch and landing for this Falcon 9 first stage booster, which previously launched SES-22 and now three Starlink missions.”
Cameras in Bermuda caught the impressive tail of light created by the rocket as it soared through the sky.
Stargazers were awed in July by the passage of a SpaceX rocket, which was launched to send a robotic Dragon resupply craft towards the International Space Station.
SpaceX was founded in 2002 by technology billionaire Elon Musk, who is also the chief executive of the Tesla electric car company.
