"A screaming comes across the sky. It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now." - Thomas Pynchon, Gravity's Rainbow

Pretty fitting quote for last night's SpaceX rocket showing up in the St. George sky last night.

Here's some photos and footage:

That's pretty amazing. I wish I would have known. I was inside watching M*A*S*H.

Per 12News in Arizona explaining exactly what it is: (link to full article)

"SpaceX launched 20 Starlink satellites from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California on Sunday night

Starlink is "the world's first and largest satellite constellation using a low Earth orbit to deliver broadband internet capable of supporting streaming, online gaming, video calls and more," according to the service's website.  

The "constellation" of satellites consists of thousands of satellites that orbit Earth at an altitude of about 550 km, or 341 3/4 miles.   

The satellites connect to antennas that users set up at their home to provide internet access."  

There have been SpaceX launches throughout the last couple of months that have been viewable in Southern Utah. I haven't caught any of them.

There are those who say: "what's the point of all of this space stuff? We beat the Russians to the moon, what's the point of all of these satellites and trying to go to Mars?"

And then there are those who breath through their noses who say: "Because it's there!"

What do you think about the SpaceX program? Let us know in the comments!
