Caption: A Soyuz Spacecraft approaches the International Space Station with a spectacular back drop of the Earth at sunrise. Having just crossed the terminator the sun angle is low and the clouds are caught dramatically in a golden light. The approaching Soyuz puffs out the occasional wisp of propellant from its reaction control engines to adjust its attitude. It has two solar panels sticking out on each side like wings. As the two spacecraft pass further into the daylight side of the Earth breaks in the cloud can be seen. By about three minutes into the clip the Soyuz is out of view and the clouds soon clear completely to reveal a large continental land mass beneath - with mountains and dramatic drainage and a couple of small lakes.
