The normal hustle and bustle of Vancouver seems muted from 402 kilometres up in the sky.

Astronaut Tim Kopra, who’s currently living and working on board the International Space Station, tweeted out a photo of Vancouver taken from, well, space.

Freighter ships dot the Burrard Inlet and Stanley Park is shown in all its green glory juxtaposed against the concrete jungle of downtown.

Vancouver isn’t the only city Kopra tweets photos of. Other recent locales include Sardinia and Brisbane.

Sunrises look pretty stunning from the vantage point of the International Space Station, too.
