Last night, a Soyuz spacecraft landed in Kazakstan, ferrying NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg, European Space Agency flight engineer Luca Parmitano and Russia's Fyodor Yurchikhin homeward from their five-and-a-half month stay on the International Space Station.

While in orbit, Nyberg and Parmitano did their best to fill the social media hole left in our collective astro-nerd heart by the retirement of a certain Chris Hadfield. Both have tweeted—and in Nyberg's case, pinned—amazing photos of their views of the world from the ISS at least once a day since they arrived in late May.


In celebration of the daily wonders brought to us by @astro_luca and @AstroKarenN, here are some of the best photos they've shared with their Earth-bound followers in recent weeks.
