International Space Station – Living Maps

As Tim Peake (@astro_timpeake) nears the end of his Principia Mission in Space (18th June 2016), he continues to take amazing imagery of our wonderful planet from up on the International Space Station.


This is a particular favourite:

London - evening in the Capital

Here is a map of all the images he has taken and their relative positions on Earth - Big Thanks to DaveAtCOGS creating an esri map app using the tweets!

There maybe some new projections needing naming, as in following images from the ISS - Look how the weather map really comes alive!!
