ISS Flyby at Low Altitude

It takes about 90 minutes for the International Space Station orbits the Earth at an altitude of around 250 miles and travels around 5 miles per second. Benjamin Granville used Microsoft Flight Simulator to show what it would look like from the ground (and from the ISS) if the space station were in a very low Earth orbit, at around 10,000 feet above us. The ISS clears New York City in roughly three seconds when traveling onboard.
