Stellar Views: New Videos of ISS and Earth

WRITTEN BY: Julia Travers

The astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) and humans down on Earth are sharing their unique perspectives of each other during the last week of Nov. 2017.

Astronaut Randy Bresnik offers some incredible footage of our world while on a spacewalk, capturing the arc of our planet against the expanse of space and the station itself. The Earth from above:

Meanwhile, the ISS has passed in view over North America this week, and will be visible again at these times:

Wednesday
Begins - 5:34 p.m. Lasts - 4 mins Appears - WSW Disappears - NE

Thursday
Begins - 6:17 p.m. Lasts - 4 mins Appears - WNW Disappears - N

Friday
Begins - 5:25 p.m. Lasts - 4 mins Appears - WNW Disappears - NNE

The ISS will look like a bright star in motion that doesn’t flash or change direction. Photographer Robert Meikle shared a video of the ISS over Raleigh. While it is certainly more minimalistic than the astronaut’s view, it offers an interesting counter perspective between the Earth and stars.
