CRS-10 (Falcon 9)
19 February 2017
Space Launch Complex 39A
Kennedy Space Center
A SpaceX Falcon 9 launches on a Commercial Resupply Services (CRS-10) mission for NASA to the International Space Station (ISS) for the first time from historic Launch Complex 39A at Kennedy Space Center on 9:39 a.m. on 19 February 2017. The CRS-10 mission features a Dragon spacecraft loaded with over 5,500 pounds of science experiments, research equipment and supplies destined for the ISS.
The first image is taken on 18 February 2017 when an odd reading from a thrust vector control scrubbed the launch. Note the clear weather.
In this second image taken during the launch on 19 February 2017, a low cloud deck and intervening fog obscured photographing the launch save for one brief shot of the rocket exhaust through the clouds. The successful landing of the first stage at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station was also unseen due to the weather.
