Cmdr. Hadfield photographs my house one last time

This may be Astronaut Chris Hadfield’s last snapshot of Cape Breton Island from 370 km up, as he returns to Earth Monday evening via  the steppes of Kazakhstan.


Hadfield’s tweeted comment: “The highlands of Cape Breton still wear the winter’s snow, sun highlighting the connecting waters.”
