Astronauts are tweeting home amazing pictures of Earth, space and beyond

Astronauts José Hernández and Soichi Noguchi really know how to make us Earth-bound folks jealous. That gorgeous shot you see up above wasn't taken from a plane — it was taken from space.

Also "frooom spaaace," which you should read in an appropriately creepy and distant voice, are shots of cities in the day, in the dark, lots of water, and even shots of the moon and the International Space Station in ways we terrestrials don't get to enjoy them.

Check it out all in the gallery below.
