We describe the use of astronomical facilities at the high-altitude Terskol Peak Observatory for the monitoring of events and processes which are occurred in the outer space during space launches. Some practical results derived from groundbased optical observations and used for precise flight path determination as well as for control over the state of a spacecraft are presented
