A Redditor who managed to capture Thursday’s Space X satellite launch from a plane flying to Los Angeles – said it was “an awesome start” to their morning.
Almost every Space X launch is exciting, but this week’s was made extra interesting after it emerged that a ship with a huge net was going to be patrolling the sea to catch the rocket as it descended back to Earth.
While many of us watched from the ground online, the lucky passenger looked on thousands of feet in the air as the spacecraft left the atmosphere.
Thankfully, user tkMagus, who says they saw the rocket from their plane, posted the clip online:
Other Redditors were in awe over the footage.
Looking at this though, I had this amazing feeling. This sight is going to be common in a couple decades. We will watch regular launches to space, just as we see airliners take off today. My kids will be used to it, but it will never not leave me in awe.
