Supercluster photographer John Kraus worked through days of delays and launch scrubs to finally bring us the stunning flight of SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket with a new batch of Starlink satellites. Liftoff occurred on Tuesday, October 6th at 7:29 AM Eastern from Kennedy Space Center's historic Pad 39A, marking the third launch for this reusable booster.

While we awaited its return to Port Canaveral following its third touchdown, John pointed his camera toward Mars, which is pretty close to Earth this month and visible in the night sky. Later, he captured the booster's homecoming from the air as it was tugged back aboard the 'Of Course I Still Love You' droneship.
