Starlink Rocket Launch – Our Front Door View

1652142797_maxresdefault.jpg.webp



This was the first launch of a rocket [when it was dark] since we moved here 2.5 months ago. We thought it would be a “nothing burger”, but it turned out to be very exciting and quite impressive.

The phenomenon, referred to by experts as a “space jellyfish,” is the illumination of sun ray’s striking leftover launch particles, according to a report by WFLA.

For the space jelly’s flight to be visible, a launch must take place near the time of sunrise, or during the twilight hours as the sun’s rays enter the upper atmosphere at a horizontal angle, WFLA reported. The sunlight interacts with ice particles left behind in the rocket’s contrail and create a a bluish-illuminating effect over the clouds referred to as “noctilucent clouds.”

  2. Super cool! Something my retired rocket scientist husband would love to see. 😃

  3. Is that the entire recording? I'd love to see the rest if you recorded any longer/more.
    Also, there is another theory of the phenomenon that you witnessed during the launch, I'll see if the video is still available I seen that best explains it , if so I'll post the link here.

  4. Wow does that mean we will get free internet now, like it was turned on in Ukraine in February for the citizens to get Truth!!

  5. Thanks, we were able to see one this April from Vero beach during the daytime. Better at night.

  6. Fantastic! When I first moved here I accidentally saw one and thought it was a comet or something. So next launch, I put my lawn chair at the end of the drive and was waiting–heard a noisy truck coming down the street–and I got 'fogged' by the mosquito truck. HA! I remember watching launches on a black and white TV as a little kid. Thanks!

  7. Karen & Roy, Have you been to the Kennedy Space Center? If not, it's a great day or overnight trip from The Villages. Also visit the Astronaut Hall of Fame Museum just outside of the Kennedy Space Center. It must have been exciting to see this rocket launch fly over your village.
