Falcon 9 Starlink 6-33 With Orion Constellation
Starlink satellite group 6-33 launched by SpaceX for its 90th mission of 2023 in the early morning hours, just after 12am on December 7 from Cape Canaveral SLC-40. This was the first clear sky I've had in a while so I wasn't going to miss it! The view from Lake Santa Fe, with the constellation Orion high above made for a magical night in the crisp cold 40° Florida temps.
Another new location, with a malfunctioning phone compass, left me half guessing the trajectory, but I'm rather happy with the end result. Very happy with how Orion settled nicely into the frame. Also in this image, albiet very faintly to the left of the launch arc is the booster re-entry burn as it returns for landing on the drone ship, JRTI out on the Atlantic ocean.
