A picture can be worth a thousands words,
in this case, British astronaut Tim Peake added a few more.
“Sun glint striking Vancouver Island, Canada” he tweeted along with this photo posted to Twitter and Flickr on Saturday.
Major Peake is due to return to Earth on June 18th.
He has been living and working on the International Space Station for almost six months.
The ISS orbits the Earth at an average distance of 400 kilometers.
Travelling at a speed of 28,800 km/hr it takes 90 minutes to make a complete circuit of Earth.
