    I hope no one objects too severely to this. It's off-topic for visual satellite observation, but you really have to see this:
    It's Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield performing David Bowie's "Space Oddity" (lightly edited --he mentions "Soyuz" for example) aboard the International Space Station. As I understand it, the recording was done on Earth, and I think he's lip-syncing in orbit. But all the interior footage is live: real Earth in the sky, real zero-g, etc.
