Sunset SpaceX rocket launch spawns ‘space jellyfish’ photos

When SpaceX launch two satellites into orbit Friday evening from Florida, it lit up the night sky with more than just its fiery engines. 

The twilight launch of two commercial SES satelltes, called O3b mPower 1 and 2, on Dec. 16 created brilliant jellyfish-like plume in the night sky visible to lucky stargazers from hundreds of miles away. The satellites launched atop a Falcon 9 rocket that lifted off from Space Launch Complex 40 at the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station at 5:48 p.m. EST (2248 GMT) and was visible from as far away as North Carolina.
