Cocoa Beach, FloridaThis image was captured at 10:56:15 p.m. on Sunday, March 3, 2024, when SpaceX/NASA launched the Crew-8 mission to the International Space Station. Just before the commencement of this single, four-minute and twenty-nine-second long-exposure, the two stages of the Falcon 9 rocket separated. As the exposure begins, the second stage ignites its single Merlin Vacuum engine, carrying the Crew Dragon ‘Endeavour’ capsule and four astronauts into orbit (leaving the frame in the bottom right). Moments later, the first stage flips around in the opposite direction and begins firing one, then three Merlin engines to ‘boost back’ to the landing zone at Cape Canaveral. This action cancels out its forward/downrange motion, reversing it instead to a high-arc return with a landing spot just off the coast of Florida, where it began its journey (ascending toward the top center of the image).

It appears almost like a star is being born: the exhaust plumes from the two stages firing at each other as they chart their respective trajectories (1st stage: up-and-back, and 2nd stage: onto orbit) create a nebula-like chiaroscuro.
