Capture an image of Shuswap from the international space station – salmon observer

With a little patience and the right weather conditions, Shuswap's residents can get a real-time view of their region from space when the international space station rises. As part of a student-led project that helps NASA develop kinks of video-stream broadcasting in space, the International Space Station (ISS) opens the Earth Earth Experiment HD live views of Earth from the orbit to anyone having access to a computer or smartphone. Four cameras placed on the outside of the ISS broadcast amazing views of the planet as the station circles the world. The college students United with NASA to create hardware (the HUNCH) program were involved in the project development, with the students working on designing and manufacturing components for the cameras and helping with the operation and maintenance of the feed from the ground. Using an app on a smartphone or via a computer's web browser, viewers can see what h these images live when they are broadcast &#821 1; and track the next time the ISS will fly over their heads and display a picture of their location. Visibility depends on many factors, such as time of day when the station passes over and local weather hides ground views. The timing windows are also generally quite small, between three and five minutes of good views of a viewer's place. However, patience is rewarded with a great view from space that would be impossible to see differently. Visitors can also save images and short video clips from the cameras mounted…

With a little patience and the right weather conditions, Shuswap’s residents can get a real-time view of their region from space when the international space station rises.

As part of a student-led project that helps NASA develop kinks of video-stream broadcasting in space, the International Space Station (ISS) opens the Earth Earth Experiment HD live views of Earth from the orbit to anyone having access to a computer or smartphone.

Four cameras placed on the outside of the ISS broadcast amazing views of the planet as the station circles the world.

The college students United with NASA to create hardware (the HUNCH) program were involved in the project development, with the students working on designing and manufacturing components for the cameras and helping with the operation and maintenance of the feed from the ground.

Visibility depends on many factors, such as time of day when the station passes over and local weather hides ground views. The timing windows are also generally quite small, between three and five minutes of good views of a viewer’s place. However, patience is rewarded with a great view from space that would be impossible to see differently.

Visitors can also save images and short video clips from the cameras mounted on the ISS directly from their smartphone at the touch of a button while watching the video stream.

According to the ISS Tracker app, British Colombians can try to get a view of the province from space during early morning hours from 10-15 March, followed by a break in coverage until March 21 and a switch to evening view from 21 -27 March. Exact times vary depending on a viewer’s location in BC, and an exact flight time can be found with your location with ISS Tracker.

In the Shuswap region, tracker shows that the ISS is scheduled to fly over Salmon Arm at the following times next week:

March 10: 6:58 with low visibility. March 11: 6:07 with good visibility March 13: 6:02 with good visibility conditions. March 14: [12459006] 5:12 am with good vision conditions.

March 15: 4:23 with good vision.
