HTV-3 and the Coast of Morocco

Uploader comment: ISS032-E-026884 (12 September 2012) --- With an oblique view of the southwest coast of Morocco serving as a backdrop, the International Space Station's Canadarm2 grasps the unpiloted Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) H-II Transfer Vehicle (HTV-3), filled with trash and unneeded items, in preparation for its release from the station. JAXA astronaut Aki Hoshide and NASA astronaut Joe Acaba, both Expedition 32 flight engineers, used the station's robot arm to grapple the HTV-3 and undock it from the Earth-facing port of the Harmony node.
