The Indian Space Research Organisation has released footage from the cameras onboard the GSLV MK III, which placed the GSAT-19 communication satellite in orbit on June 5.

The imagery captured from onboard cameras shows the separation of the S200 solid motors, a few minutes after the vehicle blasted off from the second launch pad at Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota.
