LightSail 2 launch eclipse
Light from the engines of a SpaceX Falcon Heavy is briefly eclipsed by the rocket's own exhaust plume shortly after liftoff from Kennedy Space Center on 25 June 2019 at 02:30 EDT (06:30 UTC). The rocket carried LightSail 2 and 23 other spacecraft for the U.S. Air Force's STP-2 mission.
