This was such an amazingly beautiful launch last week at Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida. The Nusantara Satu satellite, SpaceIL’s lunar lander, and AFRL’s S5 experimental smallsat all were successfully launched from a SpaceX Falcon 9. We can’t get enough of these views.

And if you’re wondering what the stack looked like before it headed to orbit, this is it, top to bottom: SpaceIL’s Beresheet, Spaceflight Adapter System, S5 (not visible), Nusantara Satu.

Here’s the webcast video of the event too. Grab your popcorn, and enjoy it again. (How many times can you watch this? Asking for a friend…)
