A long range view from A. W. Youngs Park in Vero Beach of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying out the Starlink 4-7 mission to put 49 more Starlink satellites into orbit. The plan was to get a different angle on booster separation but the rocket flew behind a cloud and was never seen again before the anticipated event. A slight consolation was a later visit to Port Canaveral to see the booster. As for the mission, a geomagnetic storm that hit Earth shortly after the launch wiped out most of the satellites.
