[b]Dragon holding at 250 meters from station[/b]
Dragon has arrived at the 820 foot (250 meter) hold point from the International Space Station. The spacecraft will now conduct hold and retreat demonstration maneuvers before resuming its approach.
After evaluation of the vehicle's ability to keep its distance and back away from the ISS, Dragon will be given the "go" to move inside the "Keep Out Sphere," which starts at 656 feet (200 meters).
Dragon's capture by the station's robotic arm is targeted for 6:59 a.m. CDT (1159 GMT).
