Beautiful photos from space on Twitter

This might just be one of the coolest uses of Twitter I’ve seen: Japanese Astronaut Souichi Noguchi is aboard the International Space Station, sailing around the globe and taking pictures of the Earth with digital cameras. He’s then posting them to Twitter (yes, from Space) along with captions telling you what you’re looking at. What a great way to see what our planet looks like from a very distinct point of view. To see images as they’re updated, you can follow Noguchi on Twitter. Here are a couple of examples:<

Mount Fuji, Japan. 3,776m. The highest mountain in Japan

Bahrain. Feel like fishing?

Aruba Antiles, near Venezuela. Beautiful!
