For the record, I updated my blog to clarify what it is that i'm plotting.  Specifically, when you see an image on my plot, you are seeing the image that a station received at that point in time.  This image was not necessarily taken from the particular geographic location.

As much as I am an ARISSat-1 fanatic, I don't think playing these particular images in a sequence would look good. 

I plan on generating a 3D fly-through that show the satellite orbiting and little animations when ground-stations received telemetry.  I would like to also show some of the more vital telemetry values in a window while the animation is playing, so you could re-live the flight!  If anyone has any thoughts or ideas, feel free to shoot them my way.  I will probably have my first-stab at a fly-through video in a day or so... I just have to get around to it.  Today, i've been focusing on telemetry analysis and doing a nice plot of ground stations.
