A nice view of two CubeSats shooting into orbit from the ISS: CubeSats Deployed Outside Station’s Kibo Lab Module | NASA –

A pair of CubeSats, with the Earth’s limb in the background, moments after being ejected from a small satellite deployer [built by NanoRacks] outside of the International Space Station’s Kibo laboratory module on Wednesday, May 16, 2017.
