CEV docked with the ISS--No. 3

A manned Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) is docked with the International Space Station (ISS).

This view is from "below" the ISS with a combination of sun light and reflected earth light illuminating the scene. Visible elements of the ISS include a pressurized mating adapter (PMA), an international docking adapter (IDA), and manned modules, and unmanned cargo vessels. On the far right also docked with the ISS is a Soyuz TMA-M manned spacecraft.

This CEV is 33 feet long with a maximum diameter of 20 feet while the solar voltaic panels have a maximum spread of a little over 60 feet.
