Hey, that's us! Astronaut tweets shot of a (mostly) cloudless Ireland

Thanks, Commander Reid Wiseman

ASTRONAUT CHRIS HADFIELD spoiled us mere earthlings with images taken from the International Space Station of countries across the world.

You might remember his stunning shot of Dublin at night, and another in daylight.

Now a new kid on the block, Reid Wiseman, is following in Hadfield’s footsteps.

Earlier this month he posted the first Vine to be sent from space, and he hasn’t left us disappointed on the twitpics front, with two pictures of Ireland tweeted this evening.

Look: Check out this amazing picture of Dublin from space >

Watch: This is the first Vine ever to be sent from Space >
