International Space Station and Earth (NASA, 09/05/09)
A portion of the International Space Station is featured in this image photographed by a space walking astronaut during the STS-128 mission's third and final session of extravehicular activity (EVA) as construction and maintenance continue on the station. The blackness of space and Earth's horizon provide the backdrop for the scene.
A full moon is visible in this view above Earth's horizon, photographed by a crew member from the International Space Station while Space Shuttle Discovery (STS-128) remains docked with the station. A portion of a station solar array wing is at left.
