SpaceX Dragon Capsule Seen Streaking Across Sky in New Orleans

A fiery streak from a SpaceX Dragon capsule cut across the night sky above parts of the US and 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.
