I see from the schedule that NASA TV public channel doesn't begin coverage until 3pm EDT. But where did the screen grabs above come from?

Where they from this? http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/isslivestream.asx

This is an exciting day! After ten years of U.S. & Russian vehicles only, we're now in a new era in space activities.

Starting with the European ATV last year, and now the Japanese HTV this year, we're seeing the ISS truly become the hub of international space flight, with arrivals and departures of a wide array of vehicles.

Add in the Orbital & SpaceX vehicles in a few years, and ISS might need its own air traffic controller!

HTV-1 resumed approach from the AI point September 18, 2009

The HTV-1 departed from the Approach Initiation (AI) point at 0:31 a.m. September 18 and resumed its approach. About one hour later, the HTV-1 will arrive at a point 500 meters below the ISS (RI point). From the RI point, the HTV-1 will slowly move to the ISS using a laser called “Rendezvous Sensor (RVS)”.

-----------------------------------------

HTV-1 arrived at 500m below the ISS (RI point) (September 18, 2009)

The HTV-1 arrived at 500 m below the ISS (RI point) at 1:38 a.m. September 18. From the RI point, the HTV-1 will slowly and accurately move closer to the ISS, at the approach speed of 1 to 10 meters per minute, while adjusting its position using the Rendezvous Sensor (RVS).

The HTV-1 arrived at 300m below the ISS (Hold Point) at 1:48 a.m. September 18. There, the HTV will turn its attitude 180 degrees (yaw-around) to prepare for its contingency escape maneuver that may be required during the rest of approach phase.

High temperatures on one set of thrusters. Will switch to other string.  This will delay yaw maneuver.
