Celebrated the 4th of July in space by docking our ‘Progress – 38” re-supply craft to the Service Module. Here is a shot of Progress - 38 on final approach as we flew over the Mediterranean Sea. The island of Sicily is directly below us.

Wooow, the Maltese Islands (Malta, Gozo & Comino), even from space looks wonderful, thanks 4 photo

Se parece igualita a mi camara...
Maravilloso, pero....... cuando le toca a Spain? gracias, y sigue asi, tan bien como se te ve en las fotos.
@y2_jedi That is the weight down on Earth. E.g. ISS and Space Shuttle docked are 729 metric tons.
@PC0101 50 kg oxygen & air !!? In the space, air and the oxygen have weight.
@STfangirl I just look up when the ISS is approaching. Always punctual. For that I use www.heavens-above.com
hola que se siente ir al espacio?
PC: 'Cause you're seeing the sky night and day but I follow the ISS "timetable" :-D (Sorry, guys, for the many offs... ON!!!!)
@STfangirl I have seen so intensive flares that even onlookers noticed the suddenly bright point of light in the sky.
PC0101: I checked it on a NASA page. ISS could be seen here till July 11, just it comes law, behind the houses. But doesn't matter, just a few weeks and the biggest "star" is coming back :-)
@STfangirl That depends on the exact location. I’ll be seeing it until July 12.
PC: I said goodbye to the ISS last night, we won't see it from London for awhile... :-(
