SpaceX launched a payload of Startlink satellites on a Falcon 9 rocket from Vandenberg Space Force Station tonight. Even though we live 650 miles away, we get a fantastic view of this sort of thing.

I think it’s awesome.

I’m not really a fan of polluting Low Earth Orbit with a bunch of satellites, but I appreciate the technology behind the effort. I wish we could use this tech to do some growing as a species and move away from the commercialism of it all.

The sight is still quite impressive.
