Image credit: NASA

Uploader comment: NASA astronaut Sunita Williams, Expedition 32 flight engineer, appears to touch the bright sun during the missionís third session of extravehicular activity (EVA) on September 5, 2012. During the six-hour, 28-minute spacewalk, Williams and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Aki Hoshide (visible in the reflections of Williamsí helmet visor), flight engineer, completed the installation of a Main Bus Switching Unit (MBSU) that was hampered by a possible misalignment and damaged threads where a bolt must be placed.
