Scott Kelly is an American astronaut who has been on a year long mission to the international space station since March.
As the were passing above Montreal, Kelly snapped a picture and tweeted it at about 9:00 am.
I know it normal by today's standards but I'm still amazed at the fact that somewhere up there, there's bunch of people sitting in a tin can, high above the world (Totally a Bowie reference) just drifting above us by as they update their twitter feeds. The world really is a funny place.
Fun fact: Scott Kelly has an identical twin brother who is a former astronaut and the Kelly brother are the only siblings to have traveled in space.
