viewed the new config

Read the article over at SpaceFlightNow on the orbital outpost. It's titled, Cosmonaut shares new perspective of International Space Station.

Great shots show the new configuration of the canted Redwire solar panels plus the recently-added Russian Nauka lab module.

the ISS as of autumn 2021

The photographs were captured by Pyotr Dubrov from his Soyuz before returning to Earth.

The excellent shots show the exterior of the ISS from a few hundred metres. Been a while since we've seen some good beauty shots. There are two SpaceX Dragon spaceships and a Northrop Grumman Cygnus supply craft docked. I particularly enjoyed the view of the lab’s new roll-out solar arrays.
