Orbital ATK's Cygnus resupply ship with its cymbal-ike UltraFlex solar arrays approaches the International Space Station's robotic arm Canadarm2 as both spacecraft fly into an orbital sunrise on Nov. 14, 2017.

The cargo craft carried almost 7,400 pounds of crew supplies, science experiments, spacewalk gear, station hardware and computer parts. New research will explore the effectiveness of antibiotics on astronauts and observe how plants absorb nutrients in microgravity. Other experiments will deploy CubeSats to explore laser communications and hybrid solar panels.

Starting out south of Australia, this April 21, 2017 time lapse video captured by the Expedition 51 crew on the International Space Station features the Southern Lights as the Station began a north-easterly leg, flying toward the sunrise over the South Pacific Ocean. A number of low-orbiting satellites can be seen in the right half of the night sky.
