The satellite GOES 16 spotted the smoke plume released as the rover launched from Cape Canaveral in Florida on 30 July.
Musk said the satellites had been fitted with VisorSat that acts as a set of shades that keep the sun from reflecting off the satellites.
The commonly accepted hypothesis is that the Moon was formed from the debris of a collision between the Earth and a smaller planet called Theia.
The Defense Ministry called Ofek 16 "an electro-optical reconnaissance satellite with advanced capabilities."
NASA turns the Solar Observatory's images into a time lapse of the Sun's life over the past 10 years

SpaceX to launch first Starlink satellites with VisorSat to block sun from reflecting off its bright parts
Elon Musk said that a "sunshade" is a set of darkened shades that can keep the sun from reflecting off the bright parts of each satellite.
A US Airforce unit that detects and tracks artificial objects in Earth’s orbit, has identified 65 pieces from the incident.
The instrument that will detect these activities is known as CubeSat Imaging Radar for Earth Sciences (CIRES).
The first Geo imaging satellite (GISAT-1) was supposed to launch aboard the GSLV-F10 on 5 March at 12,43 pm IST.
GISAT-1 is a state-of-the-art Earth observation satellite that will be used in the real-time observation of the country.

PSLV-C47/CartoSAT-3 mission: ISRO nails launch of India's CartoSAT-3, 13 American small satellites to orbit
Apart from CartoSAT-3, a communication satellite demonstration called MESHBED, and 12 SuperDove Flock satellites were also launched.
CartoSAT-3 has a five-year lifespan and will provide data for large scale urban planning, rural resource and infrastructure development, coastal land use and land cover.
Access to the data could've helped in the aftermath of the 2011 floods which destroyed crops and killed hundreds.
The satellite is named after Thebes or Tiba after an ancient city, whose ruins lie in the city of Luxor.
