Live Space Station Tracking Map..
The tracker shows where the Space Station is right now and its path 90minutes ago (-1.5 hr). and 90 minutes ahead (+1.5 hr). The dark overlay indicates where it is night time in the world.

The International Space Station with ESA’s Columbus laboratory flies 400 km high at speeds that defy gravity – literally. At 28 800 km/h it only takes 92 minutes for the weightless laboratory to make a complete circuit of Earth. Astronauts working and living on the Station experience 16 sunrises and sunsets each day.                                                                             The tracker developed by ESA, shows where the Space Station is right now and its path 90 minutes ago and 90 minutes ahead. Due to the Station’s orbit it appears to travel from west to east over our planet, and due to Earth’s own rotation the Space Station’s moves 2200 km to the west on each orbit. You can see the International Space Station, by looking up at the right time.
