CAPE CANAVERAL -- Earthlings are seeing their planet in a whole new light.

NASA's astronauts aboard the Internet-wired International Space Station are beaming down dazzling images and guess-this-mystery-location photos via Twitter. They've even launched a game. And landlubbers the world over are eating it up.

It's clear from the photos why astronauts rate Earth-gazing as their favorite pastime.

Space station commander Douglas Wheelock has been posting impressive photos of the Earth since June. This week, he posted a photo of the aurora borealis, or northern lights. He said that's how he'll forever paint it in his dreams.
