Incredible “space jellyfish” spotted in the sky following Elon Musk’s recent SpaceX launch

A SPACEX launch left a wild phenomenon in the sky as the Falcon 9 rocket rocketed into space at breakneck speed.

Clear weather conditions and early morning sun rays illuminated the rocket’s exhaust plume, creating a “space jellyfish”.

On average, Elon Musk and SpaceX will launch a rocket once a week this year.

This morning, a Falcon 9 rocket successfully launched with 53 Starlink satellites, leaving a mesmerizing glow in the sky.

“Basically, it’s still dark outside, but the sun is illuminating the cloud as it is in space,” said a SpaceX executive.

The rocket launched at 5:43 a.m. this morning from Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

When the Falcon 9 rocket lifts off with almost two million pounds of thrust, the fuel in a combustion chamber will explode.

In an article published by the Glenn Research Center, Nasa wrote: “Combustion produces hot exhaust gases that are passed through a nozzle to accelerate the flow and create thrust.”

The hot exhaust was illuminated as the Falcon 9 reached altitudes where rays of sunshine began to fill the early morning sky.

musk tweeted “Another Starlink mission completed” after dropping the satellites into orbit.

Starlink is a division of SpaceX that transmits high-speed satellite internet to customers around the world.

Musk was treated heroically by the press for speeding up Starlink terminals into Ukraine early in the Russian invasion.

This latest payload is in addition to the 132 tons of equipment SpaceX has deposited in low Earth orbit.

The next launch is scheduled for May 10 – another round of Starlink satellites will lift off on a Falcon 9 rocket from Vandenberg Space Force Base in California.

While SpaceX and Starlink are leading the way in satellites, Jeff Bezos’ space company is gaining ground.

Project Kuiper is Amazon’s Internet-from-Space initiative and has received FCC approval to launch over 3,000 satellites into low Earth orbit.
