Timelapse of HTV-3 Approach to ISS

A sped up timelapse video of the Japanese HTV-3 Cargo Spacecraft as it approached the International Space Station today, July 27th 2012.

The HTV-3 was then grappled with the robotic arm at 12:23 UTC out of video communication with the Station.

The next milestone will be positioning the HTV-3 over the docking port in the Harmony node where HTV-3 will then be berthed. Once berthed the crew will go through procedures to open the hatches between the HTV-3 and International Space Station.
