San Diego residents watch in awe as SpaceX rocket rocks SoCal sky – NBC 7 San Diego

It's not aliens. It's SpaceX!

A rocket launch was visible in the San Diego County sky Monday night as SpaceX launched its Falcon 9, sending 22 Starlink satellites into low Earth orbit from Vandenberg Space Force Base in Santa Barbara County.

San Diego denizens saw a trail of white as the rocket split the sky into an already beautiful sunset.

The launch took place around 7:30 p.m., and viewers from as far away as Arizona and as far north as San Clemente submitted photos of the rocket launch to NBC 7.
