The USOS astronauts are probably getting some pretty good photos of the spacewalkers from the Cupola.

The MLI is off, and the docking assembly is exposed to space for the first time since its launch in May 2010.

RS EVA-57 (PET: 2:06; EDT: 6:06pm): With a final launch lock released, Fedyaev, operating the European Robot Arm from inside the ISS, is ready to move the disconnected experiment airlock from Rassvet to Nauka after inspections to make sure it's free of any obstructions

Fedyaev at the ERA is moving the airlock away from Rassvet. Spacewalkers are standing by and observing - no FOD or other issues reported.

Another night shift for the #EuropeanRoboticArm (ERA). Tonight's task involves moving an experiment airlock from the Rassvet to the Nauka module on the International @Space_Station
. ERA is on the move, operated by an astronaut inside the station.

Working on assembling the bundle of stuff they'll jettison aft from the ISS towards the end of the spacewalk.
