Twitter is the new favorite social media platform of astronauts, it seems, and that worked out well for Grand Rapids this mornign. Commander Chris Hadfield tweeted a generally unseen view of Grand Rapids a night - the view from outer space!

Commander Hadfield is a Canadian, and has been snapping photos of various places from his vantage points and posting them to Twitter. His shot of Grand Rapids (seemingly taken at night) gives us a great view of Downtown GR "with the lights on, from 300 miles up".


This just proves that Grand Rapids is a beautiful place, even from space.
