It is cool but I have to wonder if it's actually 'live'. The center bottom pane is indeed live, showing its current location over the indian ocean, at the moment I type this. I checked on ISSTracker ~ Real-Time Location Tracking of the International Space Station and that is correct.

But it's night there right now and the feed shows bright, beautiful fluffy clouds? :scratch

The ISS is only 250 miles up so the horizon isn't that far away.

Looks like it'll be flying over Montreal in another 35-40 minutes. I'll go outside and wave at you guys.

This is bugging me
Right now, it's south of Australia, pretty much dead-center of night. The little white circle in the first image is the horizon as seen from the ISS. And yet, we still see still nice, bright clouds.

Ahh, finally we see the night horizon but notice the little red square at the bottom showing where the ISS is. I think that proves this is at least 20-30 minutes off 'live'.

Too much time on my hands....
