No really!

The International Space Station transmits SSTV (slow scan TV) images as it goes on its merry way, so when it is passing over you you can recieve them and decode them.

This picture was received with a handheld walkie talkie and decoded with my smartphone running an app to decode the tones. I missed the start cos I was in the house and no signal made it but when I got outside the radio sprang into life.
