How cool is this??!!??  Astronaut Ron Garan has been tweeting his pictures of Earth from Space!  He posted a lot from his travels around Earth on Earth Day yesterday.  They are amazing.  I have always been so fascinated by space and the stars.

Here are some more amazing shots from Ron Garan aka @Astro_Ron on Twitter.  Mr. Garan also blogs from space on

New Zealand.  This was @Astro_Ron's first twitpic from Space 7 days ago.
