Greetings, Earthlings.

Is it possible to use GE to duplicate the view of Earth from the international space station at the current moment (or any given moment in time)?

Not quite a straight-forward approach, but i remember when Discovery was out in space Scotty off Keyhole BBS made a tracker for both the Discovery & the ISS.. so here it is, the ISS viewing range, a path of its last 3 orbits, and a pic of where it is - including elevation information :)

Here's the file (http://bbs.keyhole.com/ubb/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=54141&page=0&vc=1#Post54141)

Let me know what you think ;)
