Falcon, 'Smoke' Ring, and Moon

Falcon, 'Smoke' Ring, and Moon -- Although the Falcon looks like it's aiming downwards, actually, it is very far up, and a long ways down range, taking a trajectory that will put it into orbit. Meanwhile the contrail is turning into a 'smoke' ring, and the moon sits there in the distance, up at the top, as a reminder of a bigger goal for another day.
