LOS ANGELES, CA (KABC) – On Thursday, Just as the sun was setting, SpaceX launched a Falcon 9 rocket into the Southern California sky. It provides a picturesque view.
The launch from Vandenberg Space Force Base took place around 6:15 p.m., and the rocket soared over the Pacific Ocean.
The mission will launch 53 Starlink satellites into orbit, assisting in the expansion of internet service around the world.
