Track the live position of the ISS

  • It takes the International Space Station around 90 minutes to orbit Planet Earth.
  • In one day, astronauts on-board the ISS see about 16 sunrises and sunsets.
  • Every orbit of the ISS is different due to drops in altitude – the orbit is adjusted with occasional reboosts.
  • During its orbit, the ISS is between 230 and 286 miles (370-460km) above the Earth's surface.
