Equipment Details:

Sony A7Riv 200mm ISO 2500 1/1000 sec

Image Details:

The Moon was so big and bright (just 2 days past Full Moon phase) that the typical long exposure rocket trail images were very washed out. Fortunately I knew the Falcon 9 would pass somewhere near the Moon in the sky so I was also shooting with a long lens and fast shutter capturing this moment.
