SpaceX Rocket Launch Lights up Night Sky Over Cape Canaveral

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon spacecraft lit up the night sky over Cape Canaveral, Florida, as a crew of four astronauts were launched from the Kennedy Space Center to the International Space Station on November 10.

The mission, called Crew-3, is carrying three NASA astronauts — Raja Chari, Tom Marshburn, and Kayla Barron — and one German astronaut, Matthias Maurer of the European Space Agency.

The mission’s astronauts will replace a crew that landed in the Gulf of Mexico on Monday
