Starlink 10/SkySats 19-21

Water vapor condenses around a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from the shockwave produced by breaking the sound barrier as the rocket launches the eleventh Starlink mission on 18 August 2020 at 10:31 a.m. from Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The rocket boosted 58 Starlink satellites and three Earth observation Skysats (19-21) for Planet. This is the sixth flight for this particular Falcon 9 first stage – a milestone achievement in reusability.
