We now have 312 ISS-Above locations worldwide – and that is 12 more locations than are allowed on a the free Google Maps system. Here is the latest map showing how far the ISS-Above has reached.

Note: The locations shown have had a random “fuzziness” factor applied to shift their location up to a couple of miles away from their actual location (this is for privacy reasons).
Although every one of the physical Kickstarter rewards were shipped months ago – I am embarrassed to admit that I never got around to sending the Tweet messages I promised for all non-physical-reward backer levels.
For all non-physical reward backers I promised to send a tweet on your behalf via the @ISSAboveYou account when the ISS passed over your location.
To do that I needed to develop a special program that would handle this. I did that a few days ago – and ever since then I’ve had one of my ISS-Above’s here running the code and dutifully sending the tweets whenever the ISS passed by their location.
This graphic shows the distribution of those tweets over the past few days
And here are some of those tweets
It has been a lot of fun to see these tweets going out.
Thanks to ALL the backers of the ISSAbove Kickstarter.
