(6 May 2012) --- While most of the world's population had no trouble at all finding the full moon on the weekend of May 5-6, one has to look really closely to spot Earth's satellite in the space traveler's eye-view aboard the International Space Station, some 240 miles above Earth. The moon can be seen just to the left of the station's Cupola and just to the right of one of its solar array panels. While the photo was recorded around midnight on May 5 in the central daylight time zone, it was already early May 6 GMT. Three Expedition 31 crew members await the arrival of three additional crewmates in a little more than a week.
