The above figure shows the earth's position at noon in Japan time. The i-CAN cameras are located in the areas that are in the midnight at this position. When you put the cursor on any of the site names and click on it, you can go to the page to show the night sky of the selected site. (You can also go to the page by clicking the site name in the below table.) You will be allowed to operate the camera, if operation is not occupied. Please enjoy the live night sky in various parts of the world.

Important!i-CANs may be sleeping in the day to protect the high-sensitivity camera.
The current "day" and "night" hemispheres are displayed on the right. Please refer to this so you can select an i-CAN suitable for night-sky observations.
