Orbiting Earth Thursday, the International Space Station got a clear picture of Port Fourchon.
The port, a service hub for almost all of the Gulf of Mexico's oil and gas platforms, retweeted a video the space station shared on Twitter.
"We see you!, Port Fourchon!!!" the port said in its retweet.
The International Space Station orbits about 250 miles above Earth at a speed of about 5 miles per second, circling the plant about once every 90 minutes. It's fairly easy to spot from the ground, appearing like a slow-moving star in a clear night sky.

Its seven-member crew was working Saturday on an experiment to grow tomatoes.
"Growing fresh food during future missions farther away from Earth may promote crew morale and reduce crew dependency on space cargo missions," NASA said in a blog post.
The crew was also preparing for a spacewalk scheduled for Saturday to install solar arrays that will increase electrical power for the station's operations and scientific research.
NASA will provide live coverage of the first spacewalk beginning at 5 a.m. Saturday on the NASA app and the agency’s website, nasa.gov/nasalive. The spacewalk is scheduled to begin at 7:25 a.m. and last about seven hours.
