Engineers called (for) an IDA selfie. Actually manoeuvring Dragon in front of the future docking port of the Commercial Crew vehicles. The Commercial Crew vehicles that will be carrying astronauts from the United States and other partner agencies launching from the United States in the future. Dragon using its thermal images and LIDAR just to help better understand the reflective environment of that IDA, basically a test to acquire some data that will be used for the future crewed Dragon during what's known as its proximity ops. Those close in operations right before actual docking... and that took about 90 minutes.
