Disney photographers captured some fantastic images of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket launch earlier this morning over Walt Disney World.

This first image by David Roark shows the Space X Falcon 9 rocket viewed from Star Wars Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

This second shot by Kent Phillips shows Falcon 9 blasting off behind Space Mountain at Magic Kingdom.

Space X's Falcon 9 rocket lifted off from Kennedy Space Center just before 6am today, topped with a Crew Dragon capsule. Aboard were NASA astronauts Megan McArthur and Shane Kimbrough, Japanese astronaut Akihiko Hoshide and European astronaut Thomas Pesquet.

This trip to the International Space Station is the third flight of the Crew Dragon capsule since May of last year
