In January, NASA astronauts aboard the International Space Station sent the first real-time tweets from space. Soon after, Japanese astronaut Soichi Noguchi (@Astro_Soichi) began tweeting stunning photographs of the view from above back to Earth.

Now that Soichi has returned home, NASA astronaut Douglas Wheelock (@Astro_Wheels) has continued live-tweeting photos from the ISS.

We've collected some of the most breathtaking images tweeted from space in the slideshow below. From Hurricane Earl to a twinkling Manhattan, a shimmering Aurora Borealis to a smoking volcano, the images present a spectacular view of Earth. Take a look and vote for your favorites!
