The Cygnus space freighter and the Soyuz MS-09 spacecraft

iss056e025135 (June 19, 2018) --- This fish-eye lens view from a window on the International Space Station shows the Northrop Grumman (formerly Orbital ATK) Cygnus commercial space freighter with its cymbal-like Ultra-Flex solar arrays attached to the Unity module. To its right is the Soyuz MS-09 spacecraft docked to the Rassvet module. Cygnus is due to end its mission July 15. The Soyuz MS-09 is planned to return to Earth Dec. 13, carrying Sergey Prokopyev, Alexander Gerst and Serena Auñón-Chancellor home after 192 days in space.
