SpaceX has pioneered the use of reusable rockets to launch satellites into space.

The descent was heralded in dramatic fashion by loud sonic booms that rumbled across Southern California as the rocket homed in on its landing pad.

SpaceX launched (and landed!) its Falcon 9 from Vandenberg Air Force Base, which sits just north of Los Angeles.

SpaceX has previously launched a Falcon 9 from Vandenberg and landed it offshore in the Pacific Ocean aboard a droneship.

SpaceX's seventeenth launch in 2018 was a success, also signifying the first land landing on the United States' west coast. The Air Force had advised the people in Central California about seeing mysterious lights and also sounds of engine booms while the first stage returned back to its base. SpaceX tweeted to confirm the successful landing.

"SAOCOM-1, together with the Italian COSMO-SkyMed X-Band SAR constellation, comprise the Italian-Argentine Satellite System for Emergency Management (SIASGE), a partnership between CONAE and the Italian Space Agency (ASI)", SpaceX officials wrote in a mission description. A backup instantaneous launch opportunity is available on Thursday, October 11 at 7:21 p.m. PDT, or Friday, October 12 at 2:21 UTC.

Previous tests sent the first stage to offshore barges, not back to launch site.

The glowing cloud from the Falcon 9 rocket is caught on video in the sky over California on October 7, 2018. The satellite, Saocom-1A, separated from the launcher's upper stage about 13 minutes later. But a successful landing would mean the company would no longer have to rely only on its drone ship for post-launch landings, according to Wired.
