ISS031-E-018154 (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 closely to recognize Earth's satellite just below center frame in the space traveler's eye-view aboard the International Space Station, some 240 miles above Earth. The station's cupola can be seen in upper portion of the image. 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.
