In January 2011, shortly before the fiftieth anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's one-orbit flight, the ISS happened to be flying the same orbit, at the same time of day (thus with same lighting) over the same ground track. Someone realized this and set up a camera in the cupola to recreate his view. The footage has been matched with the audio track of Gagarin's communications to produce a hundred-minute video called First Orbit (1:39 SLYT).
