Viewed from a window inside the cupola, the International Space Station’s “window to the world,” the Japanese Exploration Agency’s H-II Transfer Vehicle-7 rendezvoused with the orbital complex after launching from the Tanegashima Space Center. At the time this image was taken, on Oct. 11, 2018, the station was flying at an altitude of about 257 miles off the coast of Canada above the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
