This launch is 16 minutes after sunset. Should add some color to this launch.

The Delta IV Heavy was a good launcher and did a lot of useful work.  But the state of the art evolves and moves on.

Will the be the last launch for a week or so from Florida with the storm approaching?

LIFTOFF!  Another day, another mission.  Off to Orbit!

Probably obvious to most, but are the four thin towers around the rocket connected by wires for lightning protection?

That's my understanding, but they may have other functions as well.

You folks were right; they definitely did something to strengthen video signal from the droneships.

Missed the launch, but caught the landing.  Having watched launches from the first Mercury missions on, SpaceX is getting it right.  Throwing away millions (Billions SLS, eh?) of dollars worth of hardware is a thing of the past. Hopefully, SLS will launch or blow up soon and Starship will finally get the permits to take the next step in space ship operation.

Thankfully the ballgame ended just in time to get my mom away from the living room radio to the computer to see the launch. :)

My PC is so old it can not display YouTube videos above 480p without dropping lot of frames. And it's on a wired connection. My TVs on wireless can both do 4K with no problem (for 4K vids/streams)

I blame all the Windows overhead.

Here's the updated list of successful SpaceX Missions. I've realigned the dates and order for upcoming flights. Last year was a record, with Thirty-One missions.  There are currently 69 listed so far for this year, with more Starlink missions to come! We can count on several of these slipping into 2023 or later, for any one of myriad reasons, but 2022 is already another record year.  SpaceX's launch cadence is about one launch every 6.2 days so far.  That puts them on pace to hit 59 missions this year. We'll see if they can maintain that rate.

Yay space junk that will last at most 5 years before leaving its orbit, while causing issues for telescopes and the like so some people can get dial-up speed from satellites.

Next time, launch ol' Musky into space.

Much progress, such win.

We should have Biden EO the end of starlink.  Have him EO that all non essential says be deorbited or shot down.  Essential sats would be telescopes and earthscopes.  And US military sats.  Everything else must be eliminated.

If the elites want fast comms have them put fiber everywhere.  Including the places they said they would but then just stole the money through shenanigans.

Problem solved.

just saw the meteorologist I used to work with at my old TV station tweeted out a picture of it flying in the skies over NEPA a little while ago. I did not know of the launch or that we would be able to see it on the east coast and I'm really, really annoyed right now

That's what is military sats should be used for.  And with no Russian sats (since only scopes and US military sats) we could easily nuke the shiat out of Russia.  Like full on hard core annihilation and liquification of the Earth's crust in Russia.

Problem solved.

Is there now a "satellite problem"?

Mr. Fuzzypaws: Probably obvious to most, but are the four thin towers around the rocket connected by wires for lightning protection?


They are mostly for lighting protection.

Since they are there, they also get used for things like holding up cameras.  I expect there are vibration sensors on them as well.  Other groups will use those types of towers to spray water to keep the sound vibrations down a bit.

I shot a video of this...
what the hell is this?
Youtube nrfJs3k62aU


I submitted a link for it which didn't get the green.  BTW:  Dear Fark, it would be great if I could see the comments on that without have to pay for TF.

Anyway...  I watch any launch that I know is coming up.  I always look to the south in hopes of seeing something.  I never do.

And here...  I had no idea a launch was happening.  I just happened to be sitting on the front porch, and saw this approaching.  In all my years, I've never seen anything like THIS, and so low in the sky, this far from the launch site.

It was exactly as freaky as you can hear in my running commentary.

By the way, sorry it uploaded to YouTube sideways.  I filmed in landscape.  YouTube didn't seem to understand that.  Shut up and rotate your phone.
