Earth from The International Space Station

Tune in to either of these live streams from the International Space Station cams for a candid look at the planet we inhabit. 

As the space station makes its ninety-minute long orbit of Earth, get a glimpse of the deserts of Africa, the snow-capped Alps, passing satellites and countless sunrises and sunsets. 

Join the Secondary Stream of the International Space Station webcams, you’ll hear them talking and may even see the astronauts appear on camera.

Don’t forget the transmissions from the International Space Station cams are streaming from outer space. They may take a few seconds to load. They’ll also get interrupted on occasion if the astronauts have more important work to do, or the equipment is being used for something else. 

Those astronauts are travelling at over 17,000 miles an hour, 253 miles directly up and if you need help getting your head around that, the Webcam Location on this page reflects the current position of the ISS so you can see if they’re above you right now and how quickly they go past. Give them a wave!

  1. What are the dimensions of the Earth area shown by this camera as the ISS and its camera proceed in orbit?

    1. Our map on the page updates with the ISS location in real time but we can’t superimpose it onto the feed as we’re not the broadcaster!
