During to the docking approach of the Space Shuttle Endeavour to the International Space Station (ISS), a STS-108 crewmember photographed a view of the Space Vision System (SVS) targets on the U.S. Laboratory through the Crew Optical Alignment System (COAS) display on the flight deck. Once docked, the STS-108 crew can deliver necessary supplies and the Expedition Four crew can replace the Expedition Three crew as long term residents of the ISS. This image was taken with a digital still camera.
