In the sky with ISS

The space station isn't the only human made object zipping around the planet. It is, however, the largest at nearly 400 tons.

Quartz did a great graphic showing every active satellite orbiting earth (at least as of August 14, 2014). It is great because you can see them as a function of their altitude above earth.

You will find the ISS the largest circle, as well as one of the oldest active satellites.
