Nice privilege, that's a ghetto bird. You idiots

I saw it with my family.   Looked pretty cool but couldn't figure out what it was.  Guesses included an asteroid, super high helicopter reverse lights left on, plane flying backwards and then I remembered the "war" and figured Russia was nuking us so I acted like a t-bird in a bomb shelter and tried getting it on before the end.

Made for some pretty awkward conversations.

A bright light in the sky was spotted over the Susquehanna Valley around 7:40 p.m. Saturday.

SpaceX launched a Falcon9 rocket at Florida's Cape Canaveral Space Force Station at 7:32 p.m.


Unrelated.  Even a TINY bit of knowledge about aerospace would have told you that.

Journalists should be smart enough to make that call.

Even sports guys.

No it's Gates spreading his human sterilization gas.
Just part of his plan to cull the human population down to 200 - 500 million.
With 100,000 elites and the rest servitor class.

Shot over the shop at deathrocket world headquarters while putting the winter cover on the pool.

I stood there, took a video, marveled mouth hanging open.    And later it occurred to me that a nuke would probably have appeared similar on its way in, and there I stood...

Is this supposed to be sarcasm? The launch path to orbit was along the eastern seaboard. View from Virginia: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_Eosw7r5nA

No.  It wouldn't.

That's not an obvious fact, but no it wouldn't.  You wouldn't see anything, until >FLASH<

/and then you wouldn't see anything else, ever

No, not sarcasm.  Unaware that it was such a high inclination launch.  It would be visible from the entire eastern seaboard, yes.

That's pretty steep for Canaveral.  But that's why there's a launch complex there... because they can.

Oh boy, an Elon Musk thread. This one will be epic.

And it's because ballistic missiles are, well, ballistic. They expend their propellant going up (and don't waste as much time going sideways, because they never go orbital) and come down again by falling.

He runs a boring company.

If he's doing supervillain deeds already he'd spike the water supply, way more efficient than aerosolising the chems.
 
2022-09-25 4:06:17 PM  
Then again he's more about show and less about results, so maybe he'd launch a whole bunch of rockets full of chemicals and have them explode in the sky.

actually saw it last night coming in from fishing. was really cool. A quick "WTF is that moment, and then, "Oh, probably starlink"

I think there is something different about the propelents\staging on falcon\starlink that makes these plumes more visible at staging time.

A nuke coming in would just be a quickly moving dot.

You see them on the way in too, as they dump kinetic energy into the atmosphere.

It's because it was a twilight launch. The booster is in the sun, but it's dark on the ground. Those are the best.

Yeah, THAT'S the evil thing Elon Musk is doing and not something real.

Elon Musk is spreading his stink everywhere and that is no real news. Bazinga!

Even with my love of old memes, I haven't used that one for a while.

Darkling I listen; and, for many a time
I have been half in love with easeful Death,
Call'd him soft names in many a mused rhyme,
To take into the air my quiet breath;

Now more than ever seems it rich to die,
To cease upon the midnight with no pain

Here is their full video of that launch. Twilight launches provide best lighting opportunities for observing plumes high up in the glancing sunlight.

Could not figure out what it was.
