Falcon 9 HipaSat Launch

Posted by Per (Central Florida, United States) on 7 March 2018 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

My plans of posting more often are failing. I'll work on it. Thanks for looking.

Some stats on the launch:

50th launch of a Falcon 9 rocket since 2010
56th launch of Falcon rocket family since 2006
42nd Falcon 9 launch from Cape Canaveral
43rd launch of the Falcon rocket family from Cape Canaveral
30th Falcon 9 launch from pad 40
30th launch of the upgraded Falcon 9
19th Falcon 9 night launch
4th Falcon 9 launch of 2018
5th SpaceX launch of 2018
6th launch from Cape Canaveral in 2018
1st SpaceX launch for Hispasat
7th Space Systems/Loral satellite launched by SpaceX

I live on the Space Coast of Florida and enjoy making photographs of things that, for whatever reason, interest me. You'll notice that a lot of my photography is "space" related (goes with the day job), but I photograph just about anything.

If you would like to leave a comment please feel free to do so. All comments and critiques (good or bad) are welcome and appreciated. Thanks for looking.
