Earth From Space – Live NASA I.S.S. Stream

by Andrea Greengard

Here is an amazing view of Earth as seen from space courtesy of the NASA live streams aboard the ISS (International Space Station). This ISS live stream of planet earth from space is courtesy of Nasa Earth Viewing Cameras aboard the international space station. The station is crewed by NASA astronauts as well as Russian Cosmonauts and a mixture of Japanese, Canadian and European astronauts as well.

Be aware that this cam will show both live and pre-recorded footage. The reason is that as the Space Station passes into a period of night every 45 mins video is unavailable – during this time, and other breaks in transmission, recorded footage is shown.

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. When back in daylight the live stream of earth will recommence.
