More tweets from space

I've written about the Japanese astronaut Soichi Noguchi before and how he tweeted all those awesome pictures from the ISS.
But Soichi returned to Earth June 2nd this year (you can see him being carried from the landing site here) and is therefore no longer able to post those awesome pictures.

But luckily (for us) another astronaut has picked up the torch. It's American astronaut Douglas H. Wheelock (or Astro_Wheels on Twitter).
If you want to keep getting great pictures of Earth, from space, you should definitely follow him on Twitter.

You'll get amazing photos like this one of the Southern Lights (Aurora Australis).

Or this incredible picture of the Moon.
