(1 Jan. 2012) --- Framed by a window of the Cupola on the International Space Station is a scene photographed by one of the Expedition 30 crew members aboard the orbital outpost showing two Russian spacecraft that are currently docked to it. A Soyuz (near foreground) is docked to Rassvet, also known as the Mini-Research Module 1 (MRM-1), and a Progress is linked to the Pirs Docking Compartment, just above center frame. Part of Earth, mostly clouds and water, can be seen running horizontally through the scene.
