Nighttime launches are always spectacular because of the bright light cast by a rocket lifting off, even more so if skies are clear. The Block 5 variant of the rocket, optimized for reusability, has flown a single time, on May 11.

This is actually confirmation of something we already more-or-less knew. For example, the first stage of the recently debuted "Block 5" Falcon 9 is created to fly 10 times with just inspections between touchdown and liftoff, and 100 times or more with some refurbishment in the mix, Musk has said.

Falcon 9 took off at 12:45 am from the Launch Complex. The client there was the satellite operator SES, with the payload being set to deliver TV and data services to customers in the Middle East and Asia-Pacific regions.
