If you want to see the first closeups of the Dragon spacecraft taken from ISS (at 2.4 km, extreme telephoto) yesterday:

Much better images will be taken tonight/early tomorrow when Dragon will be captured and berthed to ISS.

I couldn't get up early enough to catch it live, but nice catch.

Watching now, look like they are just starting the berthing procedure.

Someone on NASA TV just referred to ".org" as "dot orgy". Do people do that often? I've never heard it pronounced before.

It made a gorgeous pass over the Bay Area a couple of nights ago. I can't get the live feeds, but nice to have something new to look up at.
