Astronaut Karen Nyberg (@AstroKarenN) posted this photo on Oct. 28 along with the following on twitter:

W/ departure of #ATV4, aft docking port empty. We move our Soyuz there Fri making room for @AstroRM & @Astro_Wakata

Two days later she followed that with another tweet:

Up early to suit up, get in Soyuz, undock from MRM1 nadir & fly around to dock at SM aft. Making parking spot for @AstroRM & @Astro_Wakata.
