Did You See The UFO?

A two-stage SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket topped by Argentina’s SAOCOM-1A satellite was launched from California’s Vandenberg Air Force Base at 10:21 p.m. EDT (7:21 p.m. local California time; 0221 GMT on Oct. 8). All went to plan and less than 9 minutes after liftoff, the Falcon 9’s first stage came back to Earth safely at SpaceX’s “Landing Zone 4” facility at Vandenberg putting on a show punctuated by a sonic boom for Southern California leaving a post-sunset contrail glowing in the cloudless skies above.
