We show the space of expanding Blaschke products on S 1 is compactified by a sphere of invariant measures, reminiscent of the sphere of geodesic currents for a hyperbolic surface. More generally, we develop a dynamical compactification for the Teichmüller space of all measure preserving topological covering maps of S 1.
