In this grainy video filmed by NASA, we can see SpaceX’s ‘Dragon’ cargo ship depart the International Space Station.

SpaceX’s cargo ship returned to earth yesterday following a one-month stay at the ISS. This trip marks SpaceX’s fourth time visiting the ISS, and its third time delivering cargo.

SpaceX shares that it “delivered nearly 5,000 pounds of cargo during this mission—including critical space station equipment and over 150 science experiments.”
