The rocket was launched at about 7:20pm and was visible only for a few minutes. Officials warned the public that it was going to be noticeable and create a sonic boom.

Elon Musk, lead designer of SpaceX tweeted of the mission “This won’t be subtle.” The rocket will make an attempt to land back at the Air Force base after deploying the SAOCOM 1A satellite in space.

In Modesto, several residents stood in their yards and streets observing the launch.
