The STS-106 crew members used a 70mm handheld camera to capture this view of the International Space Station (ISS) over a moderately cloud-covered land area. The station component nearest the camera is the Progress supply craft, which joined ISS in August 2000. Progress is docked with the Service Module or Zvezda, which connected to ISS in July 2000.
