SpaceX launch and landing in California

- The launch clock remained set to 7:21 p.m. for SpaceX's launch of a satellite into orbit from Vandenberg Air Force Base, and planned landing of the rocket booster 100 miles west of Los Angeles.

Below are some photos we were sent by viewers Sunday night.

Minutes after launch, the rocket's second stage separated from the first-stage booster and continued rising spaceward.

Those near the base, which is near Lompoc, may be able to see quite a show as the first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket burns its rocket engines to come to a gentle landing back at the air force base, officials said.

As The Verge noted, SpaceX hasn't been making sea landings by choice.

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying an Argentinian satellite has blasted off from California. This will be SpaceX's first landing attempt on the ground at Vandenberg. Elon Musk's company had leased a former Titan rocket launch site in 2015 to build its own landing pad, but it it hasn't received clearance.

SpaceX is launching a satellite to space Sunday - and it's going to be noisy, Vandenberg Air Force Base in Santa Barbara County warns.
