International Space Station flying over northern China

ISS034-E-039039 (1 Feb. 2013) --- The International Space Station was flying over northern China about 500 miles southwest of Beijing when one of the Expedition 32 crew members photographed this interesting night view. Local time was nearly 4 a.m., which means this panoramic view is looking away from daybreak. Two Russian spacecraft -- a Soyuz (center frame) and a Progress -- dominate the foreground. The Soyuz is docked to the Mini-Research Module 1 (MRM-1). The Permanent Multipurpose Module (PMM) is also visible (silhouette at left edge).
