SpaceX Capsule Visible Above Mexico's Popocatepetl Volcano

The SpaceX Dragon capsule was visible above the Popocatepetl volcano in Tlamacas, Mexico, on November 8 as the spacecraft made its way back to Earth for a splashdown in the Gulf of Mexico.

The capsule was carrying four astronauts who were returning from six months aboard the International Space Station, according to NASA. The capsule was successfully lifted out of the water in the late hours.
