SpaceX launch spawns spectacular sky ‘jellyfish’ (video, photos)

One of SpaceX’s recent Falcon 9 missions delivered a treat for skywatchers when the launch created a jaw-dropping “jellyfish” in the sky.

The Falcon 9 rocket launched from Florida’s Cape Canaveral Space Force Station on Oct. 8, carrying Intelsat’s Galaxy 33 and Galaxy 34 satellites to orbit. The launch took place soon after sunset, meaning the sun illuminated the crystalized exhaust plume from the launch, resulting in spectacular imagery in the early night sky.
