British ESA astronaut and test pilot Tim Peake’s Twitter location is a bit different to other people’s. It’s currently set to “Low Earth Orbit” as he works onboard the International Space Station for six months.

While he’s up there, he’s been capturing some incredible photos and videos, which have amassed him an impressive following of 526,000 followers on Twitter. He's gained a few more from Dubai lately, with his pictures of the city from the Space Station.

We’re enthralled by the images he’s been taking while on his mission. One of our favourites is this – showing the brilliant orange of Africa.

Here are some more of his best snaps and videos.
