Starlink 8 Launch Time Lapse

A time lapse video of the launch of a Falcon 9 rocket launching 58 Starlink satellites and 3 satellites for another company through a ride share program at 5:21 a.m. on 13 June 2020 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. Annoyingly, the tripod shifted in the soft beach sand without being noticed resulting in a lopsided horizon. Watch for the second stage going all the way down to the horizon as it arcs into orbit while the first stage can be seen maneuvering to its landing on the Of Course I Still Love You droneship positioned out in the Atlantic Ocean. The entry burn is also visible before it disappears behind a cloud on the horizon.
