North East Lincolnshire - as seen from the International Space Station
Yesterday may have been a busy day for the new commander of the International Space Station - but he still found time to tweet a picture of North East Lincolnshire from space.
Astronaut Chris Hadfield posted the picture on Wednesday afternoon, shortly before becoming the first Canadian to take command of the $150bn station.
He described it as: "Hull and the Humber Estuary, Yorkshire, England, on a picture-perfect beautiful day."
Flight engineer Commander Hadfield said his Wednesday in space included 16 sunrises, a day of research work and taking over the keys to the space station.

The Queen sent him a message to mark the occasion.
She said: "I am pleased to transmit my personal best wishes, and those of all Canadians, to Colonel Christopher Hadfield as he takes command of the International Space Station on Wednesday.
"Our thoughts and best wishes are with him and the entire crew, as are our prayers for an eventual safe return to family, friends and fellow Canadians."
