Did you see the images from the latest SpaceX release? They are spectacular!

We don't know if you remember, but late last year, the launch of SpaceX's Falcon 9 yielded beautiful images - and even some panic attacks among the unsuspecting who thought the Earth was being invaded by aliens! Anyway, you can review the scenes through this link (or kill Mega Curiosity if you haven't seen it).

Heavenly Show

The fact is that a new release took place last Sunday, October 7th, and again, the activity resulted in simply spectacular images. This time, according to Nick Lucchesi of Inverse, the mission was to transport a pair of Argentine satellites to Earth's orbit so that they could collect information about the planet's surface from there, especially soil moisture data.

But, let's go to the pictures! Nick said they were captured by photographer Shane Winter - who mounted his camera (a Panasonic GH4) on the roof of his Los Angeles home. The scenes were recorded shortly after 7:20 pm local time, shortly after the launch of Falcon 9 from the US Air Force Vanderberg Base. Watch (and be dazzled) below:

Spectacular, don't you agree? As she told Inverse staff, Winter first programmed the camera to capture images at 600 frames per second, mounted the equipment on a tripod, adjusted focus, exposure, contrast and prepared to start firing as soon as the rocket took off.

By the way, according to Mike Brwon, also from Inverse, SpaceX took the opportunity to share several images of the release - perhaps not as beautiful as those of Winter, but quite impressive nonetheless - and you can check out the selection below:

Ever thought you could watch this closely? Well, at a safe distance, so as not to risk becoming a barbecue, obviously, but you get the idea, right?
