Spaced Out

Don't you just LOVE satellite photos of space? Does your heart leap in your chest when NASA publishes it's Image of the Day -- a satellite image of a different place on Earth -- on it's Earth Observatory website? Are you anxiously searching for huge photos and slide shows of weather and volcanic eruptions seen from space?

No? Is that just me?

Well, even if your heart remains calm when faced with gorgeous space images, you should still follow this guy on Twitter.

Astronaut Soichi Noguchi (Twitter name: Astro_Soichi) takes a photo every couple of hours out of a portal window on the International Space Station and posts them on Twitpic.

He's just using a little point-and-shoot but when your subject is THE ENTIRE EARTH, it's kind of difficult for every photo not to come out absolutely amazing -- spy satellite quality, even.

"Mt. Fuji, JAPAN. On the morning of my 100th day on orbit :-)"
