Live Space Station Tracking Map

The tracker (top map) shows where the Space Station is right now and its path 90 minutes ago (-1.5 hr) and 90 minutes ahead (+1.5 hr). The dark overlay indicates where it is nighttime in the world. The map of Earth below the tracker shows where the Space Station is flying directly above.

Learn computer science. Change the world

FREE resource to teachers and parents. Parents, if your child is not associated with a school account, it gives you an option to sign in as a teacher (homeschool) and then you can add your children as student. Trust me-I used this for years and it is a wonderful resource!
