The Air Force released the warning because, while Floridians have had ample time to grow comfortable with the spectacle of SpaceX landings, this will be the first attempt to land a Falcon 9 rocket on the West Coast.

Earlier, SpaceX has already brought back the flown rockets back to the land in Florida. However, all those landings took place at the launch site of Florida's Cape Canaveral, where Elon Musk's firm has a pair of launch and landing pads.

The satellite, dubbed SAOCOM 1A, was deployed to low Earth obit about 12 minutes after launch. The ship carried a satellite into space, before returning as a reusable booster. The success of this mission is a further step in that direction, as successful landings of the reusable parts of Falcon 9 rocket considerably reduce post-launch processes.

Including Sunday's successful landing, SpaceX has returned 30 total boosters back to land or to a floating sea platform.

The satellite is the first of two for Argentina's space agency, Comision Nacional de Actividades Espaciales, and will work in conjunction with a constellation of Italian space agency satellites.

Before sticking the flawless landing on the soil, the Falcon 9 rocket delivered the latest Earth-observing satellite of Argentina, dubbed SAOCOM-1A, into space.

Landing and refurbishing first-stage boosters are key to SpaceX's plans to decrease launch costs.

Another milestone for the SpaceX chief Elon Musk - "the Falcon has landed".

Sunday's launch marks SpaceX's 17th launch of the year, which illuminated the sky, prompting a flood of social media messages from local residents.
