This rather spectacular video shows the view from the International space station. Click this link to a site which will let you know when it passes over your bit of the sky). First you have to specify your location (Configuration – select from map) by  putting a marker on a Google map, then “submit” and finally click “ISS”.

The “video” is actually a time lapse, so it’s a little jerky. The direction of travel is North to South’ish. Starting up on West Coast Canada one passes Vancouver Island and down through San Francisco, Los Angeles, Mexico and then down the West coast of South America before finally hitting sun rise as it nears Antarctica.  Watch for the lightning storms over Mexico.  Watch in full screen HD!
