International Space Station Live

If you get the chance to be outdoors in nature at night or just after sunset / before sunrise your eyes will be drawn to the wonders of the night sky. Keep an eye out for the International Space Station. There are a number of phone apps available which enable you to track the location of ISS when it is in your area or you can check online here. http://www.isstracker.com/

Live video from the International Space Station includes internal views when the crew is on-duty and Earth views at other times. The video is accompanied by audio of conversations between the crew and Mission Control. This video is only available when the space station is in contact with the ground. During “loss of signal” periods, viewers will see a blue screen. Since the station orbits the Earth once every 90 minutes, it experiences a sunrise or a sunset about every 45 minutes. When the station is in darkness, external camera video may appear black, but can sometimes provide spectacular views of lightning or city lights below.
