This project is solving the We Love Data challenge.

This project helps to show the orbit of the International Space Station (ISS) around our planet using a black skirt displaying an image of the earth. Using Lilypad Arduino and stitchable LED's, the flight will slowly light up around the skirt over a period of 91 min. until it reaches the approximate time when it is over our city (indicated by it's presence over the Earth).
