No way the EVA starts at 0705.  They had had trouble installing the SAFER on Jaws.

Snagged a computer and almost pulled it off the wall with a comm cord.  Specialists on the ground cringe in horror

Stowing SCUs. Spacewalk officially began right on time at 8:05 am ET.

EV1 reports that some water came out when she detached the SCU, which froze on her helmet bubble.

Last suit checks - one astronaut reports 4.2 psi, the other 4.4 psi.

Go to open thermal cover. Astronauts will be coming out in daylight, but 12 minutes to sunset.

O'Hara now egressing the airlock as well, but she's hidden by the thermal cover.

Edit - there she is. McClain remarks "welcome to space!" O'Hara responds "blowing my mind."

Orbital sunset. The EVAers are checking each other's SAFER handles and generally getting adapted to moving around in zero G.

Thermal cover is closed. McClain is advising the first-time EVAers on performing "translation adaptation" - suggests they do it like in the NBL, starting with some basic pitch/roll/yaw maneuvers.

US EVA-89: O'Hara plans to remove one of the 12 TBAs on the left-side SARJ and replace it with a spare unit after applying lubricant to the race ring; a TBA is shown at left; the photo at right shows a TBA clamped around a toothed race ring segment`

US EVA-89: While O'Hara is busy with the TBA R&R, Moghbeli will remove a no-longer-needed handling fixture, carry out a photo survey at the site where a future roll-out solar array blanket will be installed and straighten out an external camera ethernet cable

O'Hara's heading up the CETA spur, Moghbeli's grabbing some tools from the toolbox on the exterior of the airlock.

Moghbeli also heading up the CETA spur. They agree that moving around is a little easier than in the NBL.

First HECA view of the EVA, although there's not much to see right now.

Also getting helmet views from Loral - the MLI in the center of her view is over the SARJ TBAs, with "TBA 7" marked on one of them.

Edit - another HECA view

Moghbeli is heading onto the mast canister - 2A, I think? - where she'll be removing the H-fixture visible in her HECA.
