We thoroughly enjoy learning about the International Space Station (ISS). I keep track of when it will be flying over our home and if it works out with bedtimes, we’ll go out in front of the house and watch it go over.
By using NASA’s simple Spot the Station feature, you can use the pull down menus to find the next flyover closest to your home.
Live Stream From International Space Station
Now not only can you see it when it flies over, you can see what it is flying over! This live HD Earth Viewing feature lets you watch live streaming from the International Space Station from four different cameras attached to the ISS. It does go gray from time to time so be patient if it doesn’t immediately show you something.
