Rockets and Blimps

SpaceX Starlink Mission 6-16 rises over a blimp (airship) in Orlando, Florida. The "Subway in the Sky" offered a unique floating restaurant dining opportunity aboard a 180-foot-long footlong blimp known as 'The Beast.' The trail of lights over the blimp is a police helicopter coming in to land at the airport.
