When Astronauts tweet: @astro_andre's video #fromspace

After my last blog entry last night, I was delighted this morning to see ESA astronaut @astro_andre tweet this time lapse video of Western Europe at night from the International Space Station. Can you identify the major population centers? Gotta be quick - we're traveling at 5 miles per second! Probably a lot faster, since it's a time lapse.


@astro_andre is André Kuipers, a Dutch astronaut currently on orbit. For more about André Kuiper's life on the ISS, follow his blog here (in English)
