CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launch is a sight in and of itself. But combined with Friday morning’s sunrise, Central Floridians received an extra-special treat.

For those who set their alarm clocks early to watch the launch, they were certainly rewarded with a magnificent view.
The trail from the rocket and clouds formed at one point what looked to be a heart.
For those who missed it, these photos will have to do.
