ISS003-E-5615 (16 September 2001) --- Appearing almost as a silhouette against Earth, the Russian Docking Compartment, named Pirs (the Russian word for pier), approaches the International Space Station (ISS). One of the Expedition Three crew members, using a digital still camera with a 70mm lens, recorded the image from onboard the orbital outpost. The vehicle was launched on September 14, 2001 and docking occurred on September 16.
