ISS006-E-40544 (March 2003) --- The entire Big Dipper is visible in this photograph taken by astronaut Donald R. Pettit, Expedition Six NASA ISS science officer, on board the International Space Station (ISS). The roughly rectangular bowl (center left) and “handle” (extending toward the upper right) are shaped by the brightest stars. The Dipper is upside-down, appearing to empty its contents.
