Stunning Timelapse Of Last Night's SpaceX Rocket Launch As Seen From Los Angeles

October 8, 2018

This is a beautiful timelapse (shot at one frame/second) of last night's SpaceX rocket launch as viewed looking towards downtown Los Angeles. I think I speak for everyone who's tired of life here on earth when I say I wish I had been on that rocket. I don't even care where it's going -- it could be on its way to crash into an asteroid and I'd crank my space radio up and push the rocket thrusters to max. Also, I'm fairly certain if I had seen this in real life I would have immediately contacted all the local news outlets and informed then the aliens have landed, but it's cool for now because I scared them off but they're on their way back to whatever galaxy they came from to bring reinforcements, so we better start building a Death Star immediately. I give great interviews.

Keep going for the actual much higher quality video.

Thanks to MSA, who thought it was some sort of new firework at first, which I did as well. I'm still not convinced it's not.

    Sick! Look at all the thick blue smug just hanging over LA. What a shit-hole. A sun-baked dried up shit-hole surrounded by smug elitist Hollywood rapists and their puppets. Disgusting!

    On the other hand, that rocket looks sweet. How long until I can hop one and GTFO?

  • Isaac Ross

    Yeah, it would mean they got left behind in the final exodus.

    Meanwhile in Russia people are freaking out over a few spotlights dancing around on night clouds.

    How did they make even *that* part so much cooler? Is Elon Musk hiding a wizard under that battery factory??

    I'm pretty sure they're launching just after sunset on purpose. It's the sunlight illuminating exhaust particles against an early night sky that creates such wonderful light shows. If they launched an hour earlier or an hour later, it'd still be interesting to watch, but nowhere near as spectacular.

    Elon Musk: *takes drag of joint. puffs out* What if we like, added a lightshow to the launch?

    I imagine our kids' kids will be watching beautiful scenes like that all day every day.

  • Irina Abramovich

    Hi, TheQiwiMan: Do you have kids? Just wondering... =)

  • Jenness

    I'm not sure that's a good thing

    Yeah, it would mean they got left behind in the final exodus.
