The International Space Station (ISS) is only a few hundred meters away from the Space Shuttle Atlantis in this electronic image. The last time astronauts saw the ISS, it was not sporting the recently-arriving Progress, which appears at the top in this perspective. Also, next to the Progress, appears the Zvezda service module, which had been delivered by a Proton rocket since the most recent human visit to ISS. The ruled markings in the upper right are part of the Crew Optical Alignment Sight (COAS) on Atlantis.
