    Drove to Kissimmee Florida. Our condo is 73 miles from Cape Kennedy, but I was still able to capture this image with my cell phone camera of the night launch of SpaceX carrying the StarLink G4-6 satellite group from our tennis court! The moon is the white object at the top center. The SpaceX rocket is the orange flash on the left just above the fence. You can see the thin vapor trail streaming out behind. The tiny white dot above the fence and to the left of the “No Smoking” sign is an incoming airplane.
    It was so beautiful. We even saw the first stage boosters release then watched the second stage carry the satellite package well into orbit.
