Three International Space Station (ISS) crew members are due to return to Earth on Sunday night East Coast time, which will be Monday morning at the landing site in Kazakshtan.   It's a bit nippy there.  NASA released this photograph to show what awaits Suni Williams, Aki Hoshide and Yuri Malenchenko -- which surely will be a beautiful sight for them.

The landing is at 8:53 pm Eastern Standard Time (EST) Sunday night (7:53 pm CST), which is 7:53 am Monday morning at the landing site.
