NASA’s real-time 3D visualization tool, known as Eyes on Earth, has recently been upgraded to put more data in the public’s hand, according to a press release from the space agency.
Produced by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, in Pasadena, California, Eyes on Earth shows the placement of the International Space Station as will as other satellites, like Landsat 9.
By clicking the icon that represents the satellite, background information is available as well as a 3D model.
