SpaceX Falcon 9 Successfully Launches SES-8 Commercial Satellite from Cape Canaveral December 3, 2013. Just a gorgeous launch of the new Falcon 9 from Cape Canaveral after sunset - the absolute best time for a picturesque launch with blue/black skies and the sun still shining on objects at very high altitude. And this one didn't disappoint. Although early on I had the camera at the wrong setting for light metering/balance and had trouble focusing as the sky was nearly dark with an intense spot of light, but recovered to get some great shots of the progress of the launch with booster firing and separation and then the boosters and fairings etc falling back into the sea as the loud sound of the launch reaches the camera.

Unusual to see the fairings and boosters falling to the ocean so clearly as SpaceX heads into orbit.
