On October 8, the Falcon 9 rocket was launched from the US Air Force base Vandenberg. It successfully launched the Argentinean Earth Remote Sensing Satellite SAOCOM 1A into polar orbit. It is worth noting that the Falcon 9 took off shortly after sunset. Because residents were able to see in the sky so-called. “Jellyfish” (condensation trail from a rocket, illuminated from the horizon by the Sun), while photographers managed to make a lot of very spectacular shots.

For today's mission, SpaceX specialists reused the first stage with the serial number B1048. After separation from the rocket, it successfully landed on a special platform located not far from the launch complex. This is the first landing steps on the west coast of the United States. Prior to this, Falcon-9 missiles launched from Vandenberg could only land on autonomous barges in the Pacific Ocean.

The previous time the stage B1048 flew into space on July 25. Then it was used for the launch into space of 10 communication satellites Iridium NEXT.After separation, she successfully boarded the Just Read the Instructions autonomous barge. That landing took place under very adverse weather conditions and is currently considered the most difficult in the history of Falcon 9.
Here are some more photos taken during the take-off and landing of Falcon 9 at Vandenberg.
