SpaceX Launches First of Its Upgraded Satellites From Cape Canaveral

SpaceX said it launched 54 Starlink satellites into low-Earth orbit on Wednesday, December 28, in what was the company’s 60th launch of the year.

Footage captured by Florida resident John Concilus shows the early-morning launch from Cape Canaveral Space Space Force Station.
