San Diegans photograph Sunday night's launch of Falcon 9 rocket at Vandenberg

The primary goal of Sunday's mission was to place the SAOCOM 1A satellite into orbit, but SpaceX also successfully sent a first stage booster back to the base for the first time. The booster, meanwhile, relit its engines to maneuver itself for the return trip to SpaceX's landing zone, not far from the launch pad.

We'd love to see any photos that you managed to get.

While SpaceX has launched a rocket from Vandenberg AFB in July, its landing took place on a drone ship in the Pacific Ocean.

Elections: PDP Announces Atiku Abubakar As Presidential Candidate
Dankwambo is a two-time governor of Gombe State, first winning by a landslide in the governorship election of April 26, 2011. Voting started late at around 9:15 pm local time (2015 GMT) after voter accreditation.

Minutes after launch, the rocket's second stage separated from the first-stage booster and continued rising spaceward. After launch, the first-stage booster rocket will attempt to land at the Air Force base for the first time.

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying an Argentinian satellite has blasted off from California.

But Sunday's flight marked the first time SpaceX attempted a landing at Vandenberg, a milestone made possible by extensive environmental and safety studies that concluded the noise and possible aftermath of a failure would not cause any significant damage or harm to area wildlife.

SpaceX is launching a satellite to space Sunday - and it's going to be noisy, Vandenberg Air Force Base in Santa Barbara County warns.

The launch of the satellite, SAOCOM 1A, is being conducted for Argentina's space agency.

The satellite is the first of two that will be used for emergency management and for land monitoring.

Moscow says he is a Russian parliamentary staff member and has demanded Oslo lift the "absurd charges". Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and their North Atlantic Treaty Organisation counterparts.

The satellite's twin, SAOCOM-1B, will also launch on a Falcon 9; its liftoff is targeted for next year. Flying both satellite constellations along the same orbit supports a rapid response by providing radar readings in emergency situations.
