Bright lights, big city…yep, it’s London! But not just any old London…it’s London FROM SPACE! Astronaut Kjell Lindgren, 42, took this astonishing picture from the International Space Station, revealing our beloved city in all its beautiful sprawling, spiderweb-like glory.
Kjell Lindgren was born in Taipei in Taiwan before moving to the United States and then growing up in Britain. He returned to the US and joined the United States Air Force before joining NASA in 2007. He is renowned for snapping (and tweeting) stunning pictures from space – and this phenomenal shot of London is no exception!
He’s currently orbiting around Earth, but if you like his shot follow him on twitter @astro_kjell. Let’s hope he gets some more of London before he comes back…we could look at them all day!
