The International Space Station is above us right now. You can actually track what the astronauts can see right now. In addition to doing science on the station, the astronauts take a lot of photographs. In this lyrical video from Dennis Overbye, we get a sense of what it looks like to peer out of the ISS and see our home planet below. Enjoy:

You can read Overbye's story about the ISS if you're not into videos.
