Default Satellite tracking

A friend sent me this website, where you can see where several satellites are at any given time. At the top under "most tracked" you can pull up the map for the space station, and many others, including the North Korean one.

The space station also has a link you can click under "More Stuff" that shows a live streaming video showing what the station is approaching, and what's behind it (sometimes).

I pulled it up late this evening, and the space station is moving so fast (5 miles per second) that you can actually see the movement. I looked at about 7:10 EST, and you can see the dark areas approaching as it gets closer to where the sun has gone down. It was starting to cross over Canada just before dark. I saw what you did, Rick!

It seems I never finish what I
