OA-9 Cygnus unberthing

After nearly two months attached to the Earth-facing port of the Unity module, Northrup Grumman's (formerly Orbital ATK) OA-9 Cygnus spacecraft is set to be unberthed by the robotic Canadarm2.

After safely moving away from the ISS, the spacecraft is set to fly independently for several days before performing a de-orbit burn to burn up over the southern Pacific Ocean.
