Rendezvous Of Two Manned Space Vehicles Over The Pacific Ocean

Photograph taken from Gemini 6 of Gemini 7 during the first rendezvous of two manned space vehicles. The spacecraft were about 300 km (185 miles) above the Pacific and about 12 m (40 feet) apart when this image was taken. The two capsules came within 2 meters (6 feet) of each other at closest approach. (Gemini 6A, S65-63204)
