An Hour & a Half on Planet Earth

On Monday from 8:25 a.m. to 10:05 a.m. ET astronauts aboard the International Space Station spent one entire orbit taking and sharing photos of planet Earth. While they took their photos of Earth from space they encouraged everyone on Earth to also take photos and share them with the hashtag #1world1orbit.

David MacLean has created an interactive map to showcase the photographs people took of Earth during the event. The #1World1Orbit Event interactive map allows you to browse all these images of Earth directly from the map. The map also includes the path that the International Space Station took during its 90 minute orbit of the Earth.
