The ISEE-3 live stream is being helped by Google with a countdown at just under 3 minutes at the moment we’re writing this, so by the time you read this article the flyby would have taken place already.
If you want to watch the lunar flyby with Google’s ISEE-3 live stream and plenty of stats, which also includes the current position, then you should head over to spacecraftforall.com/live.
We’ve included a quick screenshot below that was taken just moments ago, as you can see with the countdown clock in the top right. You’ll be able to scroll around and take a look at the position live thanks to a great partnership with Google’s web technology.
You can try and access the live feed in Firefox and Safari, although we had problems running the live ISEE-3 stream in the latter. The online software just revealed a blank page, but taking a look in Chrome had no issues at all.
Google will warn you to “use the correct tools” in space, which basically means you should install the Google Chrome web browser for the best experience.
The live simulation includes stats at the bottom left for current date/time, distance to Earth, the Moon, and Sun. If you want to share questions, then just use the hashtag #ISEE3. Did you watch the live ISEE-3 lunar flyby?
Update: There’s now a live video feed about to take place from the ISEE-3 Control Center in McMoon, California.
