If you're looking for a nice segue into the weekend, try spending some time on NASA's International Space Station live stream.
It's been live for some time now, but the stream is worth re-visiting.
The video provides an internal view from cameras in the ISS when the resident astronauts are on duty. Earth views, captured by external cameras, can be seen during off-duty periods.
If you see a blue screen, just wait a few minutes. That happens when the space station has moved out of range.
"Since the station orbits the Earth once every 90 minutes, it sees a sunrise or a sunset every 45 minutes," NASA writes.
"When the station is in darkness, external camera video may appear black, but also may provide spectacular views of city lights below."
