We all need a bit of space

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield recently took to twitter from the confines of the space station. Tweeting pictures of Earth, some with topical posts such as a picture of Cardiff after rygbi thrashed rugger 30 points to 3. I wanted to share these pictures relating to Wales so that people who hadn't seen them have that opportunity. In all instances I will post the picture, the text from the tweet and a link to the tweet. This is purely to ensure that the pictures are still available should Hadfield delete his account or the original tweets. if you wish to search through his tweets for more photos then you can use the snapbird website. Just insert his username @Cmdr_Hadfield (link) and then the search term and click 'find it'. If you find any more cool pictures then post the links below.
Happy St. David's Day! The Sun shines on Holyhead, northern Wales on the first of March.
Cardiff, capital of Wales, home to Millennium Stadium (where I hear an intense rugby match has been played today).
Swansea, Wales. A natural place for people to settle and live, from pre-history to the Vikings to today.
Cardiff, capital of Wales. The Red Dragon, leading the way.
Tonight's Finale: Night wide angle from London to Newcastle to Wales. Sure can see where we choose to live.
Wales - rugged, proud and uniquely beautiful.
Ireland, Wales and Mann silhouetted in the setting sun.
Clear skies at last, from Cardiff to Belfast to Edinburgh to London, to the northern lights, and beyond.
Thanks to dtreth who left this link in the comments below. It shows a map of the world with icons over where each photo was taken. A far easier method of looking at the pictures. Using that link I was able to find the picture above and the ones below.
Exeter to Land's End, with the Moors visible from space.
Tonight's Finale: Our golden lights from Dublin to Paris, Nature's from green aurora to blue dawn.
