These late night launches just hit different. Starlink 6-30 has launched and booster 1062 has landed for the 17th time.

Falcon 9 streaking through the clouds as it carries the Starlink 6-30 payload into orbit! Even though these flights are becoming so routine, they are no less breathtaking.

Future,
Thanks for the social media dump.  Missed you during the launch. 
Tony

This shot (from your post above) looks so dreamy.  Love how the palm trees appear to sway over to look.

Speaking of which, last night I went out of my way to capture some of the details that often go unnoticed during rocket launches, specifically the glistening of Falcon 9s flames in the water.

Cross-post re: Thanksgiving holiday commercial aviation and Space Coast launches; this launch avoided the busiest USA air travel day of all time, Sunday, November 26: ✈️

FAA: Traveling to central Florida airports on commercial flights from the northeast will no longer experience delays or reroutes during a typical space launch.

"Based on risk analyses conducted for every launch and working with the U.S. Space Force and space launch operators, the FAA determined the existing airspace restrictions for most Florida launches were too large and could be safely reduced.

More than 80 percent of the Florida launch trajectories are to the east and south. Sections of airspace to the north that had been traditionally closed for all launches can now remain open during most launches. Within this northern section is the busy overwater route from the northeast to central Florida airports in Orlando, Tampa, St. Petersburg and Sarasota, among others."

Support your local planetarium! (COVID-panic and forward: Now more than ever.) My current avatar is saying "i wants to go uppies!" Yes, there are God-given rights. Do you wish to gainsay the Declaration of Independence?

Booster B1062 has returned to Port Canaveral riding atop @SpaceX droneship Just Read The Instructions (JRTI) after 17 (!) trips to space and back. It has earned every bit of that soot! Tug Crosby Skipper with the tow. 👍🏻🚀⛴️
