A Canadian’s View of Earth

Commander Chris Hadfield of the Canadian Space Agency launched into space on December 19th, 2012 as part of the International Space Station’s Expedition 35.  Without a doubt, Commander Hadfield is one of the friendliest and most accessible astronauts that has been in space (not to say that there haven’t been other fantastic astronauts), and he is making Canadians fiercely proud. He has been Tweeting from space regularly and responding to curious space-heads from around the globe. One of the other things Commander Hadfield has been doing is sharing his unique perspective on the world, Tweeting numerous photos from high above.

Here are a few photographs Commander Hadfield has shared. It makes you see our planet in a whole new light.
