Magic Windows | International Space Station (W5)

I found an API that returns the coordinate of the ISS (International Space Station).

{ "message": "success", "timestamp": UNIX_TIME_STAMP, "iss_position": { "latitude": CURRENT_LATITUDE, "longitude": CURRENT_LONGITUDE } }

It looks pretty simple to use so I thought of having a scene in Unity with the earth and ISS rotating around it.

I used the in-class example code, but instead of calling the API once, I made it call the API 10x per second. After each successful call, the coordinate of the capsule object gets updated based on the latitude and longitude from the JSON response.
