January 10, 2014 - A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket blasts off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station's Launch Complex 40 at 4:47 a.m. EDT on the fifth of its 12 resupply missions.

Atop Falcon is the Dragon spacecraft with more than 5,000 pounds of supplies and equipment for the space station.

The first stage executed a series of maneuvers after separation, in an attempt to land atop a floating platform off the coast of Florida. It's been reported the stage did reach the platform, but was destroyed due to a hard landing. First stage can be seen descending in photo #7.

Jupiter and the Moon were also on display!
