SpaceX Falcon 9 Rockets Over Falcon Heavy In Amazing Launch Video Display
SpaceX’s 50th mission of 2023. Of course, you can watch the launch on YouTube to enjoy the full event, but even more impressive than that were some perfectly timed and placed photographs of the launch. Posted to the company’s social media sites, you can see the Falcon 9 soaring over its Heavy sibling and later punching through the clouds, creating a vortex.
Following this, the Falcon Heavy dusted off later at 11:04 pm carrying the Hughes JUPITER 3 satellite bound for a geosynchronous transfer orbit. This launch was also special because it was SpaceX’s 250th successful mission overall. To mark the occasion, some stellar photography was taken of this launch, too, showing the Heavy blasting off from Launch Complex 39A and flying over one of its forebearers, the Mercury Redstone rocket.

You can also catch this launch on YouTube, but the pictures are breathtaking, and being in person for any of them is more than worthwhile. We highly recommend the trip if you ever find yourself in the area of Cape Canaveral, but for now, these amazing photos will have to do.
