See Videos From The Truly Beautiful Falcon 9 Rocket Launch From Southern California

Last night, SpaceX launched a Falcon 9 rocket from California’s Vandenberg Air Force Base at 5:27 pm Pacific time.  The launch happened around 30 minutes after the sunset in Southern California.  The launch was a major success carrying 10 Iridium Next communications satellites into orbit.  But the launch did something interesting, it provided a major show for people living across Southern California and the Southwest United States.  In the videos below, you see the Falcon 9 streaking across the sky then leaving behind this glowing plume that left people jaw’s dropped!  This was some really amazing stuff!
