On February 6th, 2018, Elon Musk’s company SpaceX flew a test flight of the Falcon Heavy rocket system. Inside the payload faring was Elon’s own Tesla Roadster. Seated in the driver’s seat was a mannequin dressed in a SpaceX pressure suit, driving toward Mars, listening to David Bowie’s Space Oddity. Here are some photos I took of that launch taken from Jetty Park in Port Canaveral.

Camera was a Canon 7D, 100-400mm IS zoom, handheld.
