As I take a bit of a blogging break, I thought I would leave you something to enjoy while I am gone.
This is Technology at its FINEST!!!
By clicking the link below, you will be taken to a LIVE view of the planet Earth from the International Space Station.
It is Awesome. Mesmerizing. Humbling.
If you see a black screen, the space station is on the dark side of the earth. If you scroll down the page a bit, you will see a live map so that you can locate what part of the earth you are flying over (or confirm that the space station is on the dark side.)
It might take a few moments for the page to load, so be patient. It’s worth it.
This only went live back in April, as an experiment. Hopefully, they will keep it up.
I’ve bookmarked this site, and find myself returning to it often. What an awesome view.
Once you are viewing our planet from the space station, click on the arrows in the right hand bottom corner of the screen so that the scene explodes to a full-screen view on your computer. Wowza.
Keep your eyes on the screen…. you’ll see that you are actually, virtually, moving around our planet.
