You don’t have to be in Florida before you witness today’s satellite launch

So I was just in my yard, playing around and a friend called my attention to a flying object in the sky. At first I thought she was joking, I chose not to believe her when she made mention of the word ‘rocket’.

Rocket launch in Nigeria? Not possible. She kept calling my attention to it, so I decided to look up ? brethren, Lo and behold it’s a satellite going up in the sky with the fire thingy under it.

Where could it be coming from, I’ve read about virtually all the news making rounds in Nigeria today never saw any that talked about a satellite launch. Ugh! Could it be aliens, trying to invade our poor country OMG!

So, I immediately dashed into the house to get my phone, of course I can not let this just go without capturing it on my phone. I took the pictures and watched as the satellite go deep into the sky till I could no longer see it.

For a second I decided to Google Search if there’s any satellite launch slated for today, the 31st of may, 2018. To my surprise there is ” A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will launch the SES 12 communications satellite from Cape Canaveral, Florida at 12:29 p.m. EDT (0429 GMT).

So this satellite is coming from Florida and I saw it in one of the towns in Ondo State, Nigeria.

So, you see you do not have to be in Florida before you witness the SES 12 communications satellite, cause I’m in Nigeria and I just saw it.

That’s my today’s personal Experience, what’s yours?
