Fiery Streak From SpaceX Capsule Re-Entering Earth Lights Up New Orleans Night Sky

A fiery streak from a SpaceX Dragon capsule cut across the night sky above New Orleans, Louisiana, 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.
