This view in the International Space Station’s Cupola was photographed by an Expedition 30 crew member during the first of three Canadarm2 Space Station Remote Manipulator System (SSRMS) Offset Grapple sessions in the onboard training plan for SpaceX-Demo Dragon capture. Ground teams prepositioned the arm and the crew completed misaligned grapple approaches to the Permanent Multipurpose Module (PMM) Flight Releasable Grapple Fixture (FRGF) in order to familiarize themselves with operations from the Cupola Robotic Work Station (RWS).
