Live ISS Video

Live streaming video by Ustream

Here’s the ISS HD Earth Viewing Experiment. The experiment was activated on 30 April 2014 and has worked quite well.

The UStream page tells more of the experiment and answers like: who do I see a black or gray screen.

NASA and JSC have a nice page with the video, a plot of the ISS location and a Google map of what’s under the ISS. Have a look.

When we had the shuttle missions NASA would often show television video of the Earth as the shuttle orbited. Frequently it was the best programming on TV. I need to watch as the ISS passes over thunderstorms in the dark areas to see if the HD camera picks up the lightning flashes.
