    I hope no one objects too severely to this. It's largely irrelevant to NavList, but you really have to see this:

    It's Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield performing David Bowie's "Space Oddity" (lightly edited) 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.

    The time-lapse views "out the window" include some nice constellation views. For NavList relevance, how many navigational stars can you spot? And notice how one of the solar arrays seems to be tied to Orion. They're tracking the Sun, but the difference between solar and sidereal rotation rate is not much.
