Flight of the Cygnus:

Orbital Science’s Cygnus spaceship was successfully berthed and captured by the International Space Station earlier this Morning, September 29, 2013. Following a one-week delay in orbit to fix a navigational computer error, and to allow time for the incoming Expedition 37 crew to arrive, Cygnus was successfully berthed to the earth facing, or nadir, port of the Harmony node module at 8:44 AM EST. Tomorrow, the crew will open the hatch and begin to unload the vehicle.

These image stills from NASA TV show the flight of the craft in the vicinity of the space station, the grapple by the Station’s robotic arm, and positioning to berthing.
