Thanks for that comp. Yea I basically have this running in the background 24/7 since it started. I've sat for 45 min once and watched sunrise/sunset. Just beautiful.

They gotta tweak the exposure on some cameras though.

it's interesting to see how long it takes from the sunrise on the station to when you actually get to see the runrise on the earth.

Yea 45min of day and 45min of dark. 90 minutes to complete a revolution at the ISS's altitude/velocity. The higher the orbit the longer it takes because your moving at a slower speed.

I reeeally dig this stuff. I could talk about it all day.
