Astronaut Reid Wiseman, aboard the International Space Station, shared this image on Friday, June 6 wishing everyone a great weekend. He shared that this image shows "Trinidad and Tobago in the evening sun."

The crew of the ISS is preparing to take out the trash when a resupply craft undocks Monday morning. The crew is also counting down to a Russian spacewalk on June 19. In the meantime, science, maintenance and exercise are filling the rest of the crew’s time.

The ISS Progress 53 (53P) cargo craft has been filled with trash and discarded gear. Flight Engineers Alexander Skvortsov and Oleg Artemyev closed the hatches Friday morning and monitored for leak checks in the afternoon. It will undock from the aft end of the Zvezda service module Monday at 9:30 a.m. EDT and reenter the Earth’s atmosphere a few hours later for a fiery destruction over the Pacific Ocean.
