Range Tracking


SpaceX launched the ZUMA spacecraft aboard a Falcon 9 rocket the night of 7 January 2018. Separation of the first and second stage created a surreal multicolored light show of intermixing exhaust gasses in the night sky as the two stages maneuvered away from each other. The second stage to continue carrying the ZUMA spacecraft into orbit and the first stage maneuvering to land back at Landing Zone 1 (LZ-1) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
