The communications satellite SES-12, weighing near about 5.4-ton is created to provide data, video, and other services reinforcing communications across the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific area.

The launch was, of course, the highlight of the event but the breathtaking photos that followed were the real winners.

SES-12 is the latest satellite that SES has launched to that orbital position where it will operate under the authority of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Halliwell said. SES will implement its strategy to launch for the fourth time.

With the SES-12 mission in the books, SpaceX completed its 11th launch in just over five months this year.

SpaceX had hoped to launch the SES-12 satellite last week, but a combination of factors, including additional second stage inspections, pushed the flight to Monday.

SpaceX successfully launched a rocket into the night sky about a half hour after midnight Monday morning, deploying a European company's satellite, SES 12, with no apparent problems. The company intends to fly a handful more of its used Block 4 versions of the Falcon 9 rocket before fully transitioning to the Block 5 version later this summer or early fall.

SpaceX estimates the Block 5's improved features will reduce launch costs from £45 million ($60 million) to £37 million ($50 million).
