From ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano comes an absolutely gorgeous view of our planet from space.

Parmitano captured this view of a cloud-covered Earth yesterday from the International Space Station. He arrived aboard humanity's orbital outpost back in May, as a member of Expedition 36. He's been tweeting photos from low-Earth orbit ever since – follow him on Twitter for regular updates!
