A United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket that launched to space from Florida this morning left behind a spectacular show for people lucky enough to watch it back on Earth.

The Atlas V successfully carried the MORELOS-3 communication satellite for Mexico to orbit this morning after launching from Florida’s Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at 6:28 a.m. ET

The rocket left a beautiful contrail in the pre-dawn sky, and skywatchers on the ground managed to snap some great images of the rocket heading to orbit
