This is beyond the best viewed large suggestion. It’s tiny, and a long (long) ways off. It’s the only way to view this shot.
Last night we were out on an uninhabited barrier island.
The SpaceX launch came into view.
At first I though the ship had dropped booster rockets. More came so this was when the rocket was releasing the payload of new satellites. A bit later there was a smaller second release.
Wrong lens, wrong settings, perfect spot. We were out in the ocean to avoid ‘light pollution’ for milky way and star photography.

Thanks. Certainly no great photography here, but the story and image came out OK. All by good timing 😁😁
It surely did.
