Overview

Where is the International Space Station (ISS) right now? Well, wherever it is, it won't be there for long. The ISS is always on the move and doing so very quickly. It goes all the way around the world in 1 and half hours (92.68 minutes). So by the time you look up its position, it's probably already somewhere else.

This guide will show how you can use your PyPortal to get the current global location of the ISS and display it on top of a world map. The display will auto update. So by letting this program run, you can have a near real time display of the current location of the ISS.

Let's get started.
