A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carried an Argentinian Earth-observation satellite into space Sunday and for the first time landed a first-stage booster back at its California launch site.

It will be SpaceX's first time trying to land one of its reusable rockets on the West Coast.

SpaceX founder Elon Musk was a bit more succinct in a pre-launch tweet: "Sonic boom warning". It was the 30th successful landing for SpaceX out of 62 total launches and the 12th on land.

The launch lit up the sky across San Diego and locals flooded KSWB with photos and questions about what they'd just seen overhead. Boosters are shorter-burning rocket motors/engines that are used alongside the main rockets to augment the space vehicle's takeoff thrust and payload capacity during initial stage launch.

"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.
