Pic: This is what Dublin looks like from space

We’re not half bad looking from far away…

THIS BEAUTIFUL IMAGE of Dublin, taken on the International Space Station, was tweeted in the early hours of this morning by Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield.

Hadfield was at first unsure which port town featured in the image which was taken through a gap in our seemingly constant cloud cover, but his Twitter followers quickly chimed in that it was Ireland’s capital city. Isn’t that lovely?
