The ISS orbit is inclined at 51.6 degrees relative to the equator, so that just means it will go 51.6 degrees north of the equator and 51.6 degrees south of it. This page has a good explanation of the orbit and some great pictures which illustrate it.
Yes, usually you just need to run the image acquisition code on the ISS - which runs on the NoIR camera with the blue filter and later when you get the data back you can post process it using whatever tools you like. There's really no point to processing it in flight.
Please just save them in the same folder as your Python code files, we modify the output folder slightly when we prepare your code for flight.
Code: Select all
dist = haversine(iss_long, iss_lat, target_long, target_lat) sense.show_message("%s km" % round(dist))
