The space station

Something like every 17 minutes the International Space Station flies around the earth. You can plug your location into this webpage and look to the horizon and see it fly across the sky. You can also watch the live feed on you tube

I unfortunately where I live there are too many trees and I can’t really see the space station when I look for it, but I sometimes spend time watching the live feed. I sometimes try to recognize land and see where it flies over but usually I can’t. I sometimes watch electrical storms, the night turn to daylight and day turn to nighttime as the space station flies at about 17,000 miles per hour.

I made a small cyanotype book recently. Gold and blue pages, land and sea. I recognize some of the landforms as I look out the space station window, and see the rising tide. I see land being covered by water, on the coasts and along rivers. I keep looking as the world spins and the station zooms by.

I am a Freelance Photographer in Rhode Island. I make photographs using a variety of methods with and without a camera. I make photo emulsions from scratch, I coat my own photo paper and make cyanotypes too. I am a huge fan of Caffenol, and instead of instant coffee, I roast my own beans and sell them. I also sell silver recovery products.
