Space Station Over Earth (NASA, International Space Station, 03/20/11)

An Expedition 27 crew member used a fish-eye lens attached to an electronic still camera to capture this image of a portion of the International Space Station including the docked Kounotori2 H-II Transfer Vehicle (HTV-2); Canadarm2; and Canadian-built Dextre, also known as the Special Purpose Dextrous Manipulator (SPDM). A blue and white part of Earth and the blackness of space provide the backdrop for the scene.
