The SpaceX Falcon Heavy Rocket Nebula

In the early morning of June 25th, 2019, SpaceX launched the third Falcon Heavy rocket carrying the STP-2 mission payload into space. A few minutes after launch, the rocket had left the atmosphere and the two side boosters separated and boosted back to land while the center core continued on deeper into space. In this image we see the results of the light show from those engines firing in space.
