This image is a composite of 81 images shot in a series starting when the media was escorted to the ITL Causeway, just after 12:30am on Friday, May 6, 2016. The skies were very clear, and the stars (as you can see) were very visible. Each of the images was a 30 second exposure and they run right up to just before the launch by SpaceX of their Falcon9 rocket carrying the JCSAT-14 communications satellite at just after 1:20am. The launch itself is captured by a 166 second exposure that is (obviously) the streak. (Photo credit: Michael Seeley / We Report Space)
