Cygnus Spacecraft Attached To Harmony Node

Attached to the Harmony node, the first Cygnus commercial cargo spacecraft built by Orbital Sciences Corp., in the grasp of the Canadarm2, is photographed by an Expedition 37 crew member on the International Space Station.
The two spacecraft converged at 7:01 a.m. EDT on Sept. 29, 2013. The thin line of Earth’s atmosphere provides the backdrop for the scene.
