Browse astronaut photos taken from the ISS with this handy map

While you’re gearing up for the weekend, why not peruse a collection of photos snapped from high above Earth’s surface. Thanks to Dave MacLean’s interactive map, you can do just that with over 650 images taken by astronauts aboard the International Space Station. The cartographic library plots the location each photograph was captured, color-coded orbiter on Expeditions 40 and 41. On top of that, you’re able to see exactly were the ISS is currently in orbit. Pretty neat, if you ask us.
