More than 25,000 people around the world have a new perspective of Canberra after NASA astronaut Rick Mastracchio showed off his view from the International Space Station.
Mr Mastracchio, a popular Twitter user who lists his location as "Low Earth Orbit", shared a photo of Canberra's easily recognised footprint just before 8am on Wednesday.

Despite being more than 200 miles above the earth, the photo shows the outline of Parliament House, Black Mountain, Lake Burley Griffin and Canberra's suburbs.
The photo has been retweeted more than 60 times, alongside others by Mr Mastracchio's showing London, Paris, the glaciers of Patagonia, Buenos Aries and Japan.
In January astronaut Chris Hadfield, an engineer on the ISS, also found social media fame thanks to his regular tweets about life in orbit.
His images of Canberra showed an even larger area around the ACT.
The ISS has been occupied by astronauts since November 2000. The station has travelled more than 1.5 billion statute miles - the equivalent of eight round trips to the Sun.
It has recorded 57,361 orbits around the Earth.
Mr Mastracchio is a veteran of three NASA spaceflights, and has been on the ISS since November 6.
