The Quest Airlock Hatch is the place were astronauts leave the Space Station for a spacewalk.
Although I earlier captured images of the Quest,I know succeeded to image the Hatch itself as
a dark shade at the right place on the airlock.I earlier saw in live docking-video of the ISS that
under certain lighting conditions the closed Hatch can be appear as a dark shade.
A Nasa image of this area can be found here:
