View from the ISS.
There is a new NASA page that is kind of interesting that just appeared on the internet. If you watch the ISS orbit on one of the many tracking web pages or software, you'll see what part of the planet it is currently over. This site will match up the view looking down from the ISS with a small catalog of photos of the area that it's currently flying over. No, they aren't live images, but images taken from the past. Not just one but several different shots. So go to the site as it flies over your house and see images of your home city (or just cheat and find them elsewhere too searching the NASA pages).
