Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX, posted a stunning image of a Falcon 9 second-stage deorbit burn on Thursday.
It's not the highest-resolution view you'll ever see, but what's notable about the image and video is that they came from the point of view of a Starlink satellite. It's easier to spot the action in the video clip.

SpaceX has been pumping Starlinks into orbit to build a global broadband network.
The satellites have been the subject of debate due to the fact that, in astronomical observations, they can sometimes give the appearance of unwelcome streaks of light.
Additionally, Starlink's camera capabilities are called into question as a result of Musk's film.
