ISS Lamp Alerts You When Space Station is Flying Overhead

Craft & Design

Nathan Bergey created this awesome “ISS Lamp” that glows when the International Space Station is flying overhead.

The International Space Station (ISS) is a marvel of current technology and humanity. Sadly, we often forget it’s there.
This light sits on a desk and lights up when the space station passes overhead. It stays lit as long as the station is more than 10 degrees above the horizon.
Being reminded that there are astronauts doing science over our heads every day helps reconnect us with our space program.

See how he assembled and programed the lamp over on his blog. [via @SpaceUpHOU]
