UrtheCast is a web service that allows you to watch the Earth live from the cameras that will be installed on the ISS. Here’s what the service is all about:

UrtheCast’s two cameras will stream unprecedented footage of our evolving Earth to anyone with an internet connection. In near real time, you will be able to visit your favourite locales and learn about current events as they unfold.
