CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.  — SpaceX CRS-25 flight to the International Space Station launched Thursday aboard a Falcon 9 rocket from NASA's Kennedy Space Center.

The 25th commercial resupply mission to the ISS by SpaceX will deliver supplies, equipment and science investigations.

The CRS-25 flight has been delayed since June after testing uncovered degradation to key components in the Dragon spacecraft, resulting in the spacecraft's parachutes needing to be replaced.

Many WPTV viewers spotted it soaring over South Florida.

Hannah Lovely spotted the rocket launch when driving home.

"It was a small ball of light moving rather quickly with a trail of bright white smoke and then just dimmed," she told WPTV.
