Did the astronauts aboard the International Space Station snap a photo of where you live from orbit? Now you can find out, thanks to an interactive map of more than 650 pictures that the astronauts shared with the world on Twitter.
The map was created by Dave MacClean, a faculty member at the Centre of Geographic Sciences in Nova Scotia. Each locator pin is color-coded to indicate which astronaut took the photo. Just left-click on the pin to see the image and a link to the original tweet. And, as a bonus, the map shows you the location of the space station in real time (give or take a minute).
