Shortly after undocking the TMA-20 Soyuz spacecraft “Varangian” from the ISS’s Rassvet module; Expedition 27 astronaut Paolo Nespoli (ESA), from a distance of about 200 meters snaps these incredible images as well as video of the International Space Station (ISS), Space Shuttle Endeavour and ESA’s ATV-2.
STS-134 Space Shuttle Endeavour was docked to the Harmony module for OV-105’s final mission (ULF6). Opposite the shuttle, ESA’s Automated Transfer Vehicle-2 (ATV-2) “Johannes Kepler” cargo spacecraft can be seen docked to the Zvezda module. The entire shoot lasted approximately 30 minutes and during the shoot the ISS executed a 130 degree maneuver to change the angle of the images.

Onboard TMA-20 was Expedition 27 Commander; cosmonaut Dmitry Kondratyev, ESA astronaut Paolo Nespoli and NASA astronaut Cady Coleman.
