SpaceX launches another 52 Starlink satellites

SpaceX launched another 52 Starlink satellites from Florida Saturday — and their rockets were seen as far as Long Island on their way into space.

A Falcon 9 rocket equipped with the satellites blasted off from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station at 7:32 p.m. on Saturday night.

The rocket appeared comet-like over Long Island, where lucky viewers could see a brilliant ball of light propelling through the sky trailed by a luminous tail.

Nine minutes after launch, the Falcon-9’s first stage booster separated from the rocket and tumbled back towards Earth where it was landed on a “droneship” stationed in the Atlantic Ocean, according to SpaceX’s details of the launch.

Just over 15 minutes after launch, SpaceX confirmed that the satellites had been deployed. The New York Post
