Space Halloween can be as exciting as Earth's spooky holiday. These photos by NASA show that astronauts at the International Space Station enjoy Halloween just as much as Earth-bound trick-or-treaters.

The astronaut crews of spacecraft have come up with many creative ways to dress up for costume holidays, including Superman and Darth Vader. Take a look at this photo.

Aun Chancellor plays the role of a mad scientist during Expedition 57 to the station.
