Astronaut Mike Hopkins tweeted this picture last night, taken from the International Space Station. Pretty cool, huh? It looks more like an oil painting of a tiger than the surface of what we call a “blue” planet. Just more proof that everything looks cooler from space.
Almost looks like a painting with the clouds and red earth in the background. Had to share this one. pic.twitter.com/NfCCGrE2Uy
