When Jubal Early has landed on Serenity after leaving his craft, he looks into the Galley through the external windows (at around 45 mins). He crawls forward on the exterior of the hull and places his hand on the window frame just before his head appears from the top of the window. He is in Free Space but his hand is bare, not in the Space suit glove he was wearing when he closed the Airlock on his own craft. See more
