Astronaut Terry Virts Captured Breathtaking Photos, Video While In Space. Here Are Some Favorites

After spending 200 days on the International Space Station, NASA astronaut Terry Virts is now back on Earth.

Space fans will certainly miss Virts’ documentation of life aboard the ISS. The astronaut has gained quite the social media following in recent months thanks to the truly spectacular photographs and videos that he’s captured from his celestial vantage point.

Before arriving back on his home planet last week, Virts took the time to snap a few final pictures of Earth from way up high. They include a particularly stunning one of Egypt’s Great Pyramids of Giza.
