The View of Earth Live from Space

ISS Live is a beautiful WebGL Earth visualization of the position of the International Space Station, which also includes NASA's High Definition Earth Viewing (HDEV) live video stream of the Earth as seen from the ISS.

There are a number of other maps of NASA's live stream of Earth but the use of a 3d globe in ISS Live makes this the most beautiful. The visualization uses Kloken Technolgies' WebGL Earth with Mapbox's satellite imagery,

You can use the shift key on your keyboard to rotate the orientation of the WebGL Earth globe and zoom in and out by right-clicking your mouse.
