Image Caption: This scene photographed from a rendezvous window of the American Apollo spacecraft in earth orbit shows the Soviet Soyuz spacecraft contrasted against a black-sky background with the earth's horizon below. The three major components of the Soyuz are the spherical-shaped Orbital Module, the bell shaped Descent Vehicle and the cylindrical-shaped Instrument Assembly Module. The American Docking Mechanism (DM) is visible very faintly at the top of the picture.
