MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW/AP) — Did you see the bright light across the sky Friday morning? Don’t worry, the world isn’t ending; it was the SpaceX launch making it’s way across the early morning sky.

SpaceX launched four astronauts toward orbit Friday using a recycled rocket and capsule, the third crew flight in less than a year for Elon Musk’s rapidly expanding company.

The astronauts from the U.S., Japan and France should reach the International Space Station early Saturday morning, following a 23-hour ride in the same Dragon capsule used by SpaceX’s debut crew last May. They’ll spend six months at the orbiting lab.
