Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory features the SpaceX Crew Dragon as it approaches the International Space Station.

NASA astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley lifted off on May 30, 2020 from NASA Kennedy Space Center in Florida. 

Behnken and Hurley named their spacecraft Endeavour as a tribute to the first space shuttle that both astronauts had flown on.

When Endeavour reached the ISS, both were about 262 miles above the northern border of China and Mongolia.
