Cygnus in Sunlight | International Space Station


The Northrop Grumman (formerly Orbital ATK) Cygnus resupply ship and its UltraFlex solar arrays figure prominently in this photograph of several International Space Station components with Earth in the background. At top are a set of basketball court-sized solar arrays. In the foreground is the Cupola and a portion of the Tranquility module. At bottom is the Soyuz MS-09 spacecraft docked to the Rassvet module.
