Happy Holidays from the International Space Station!
Astronauts sent a seasons greeting back to planet earth from 100- 400 km above the earth.
Astronaut Maj Peake, is filmed speaking alongside his fellow astronauts Scott Kelly and Tim Kopra sending their love.
"Christmas is traditionally a time for friends and families to get together and although we can’t be with our friends and families this year, we’ll be orbiting the Earth 16 times on Christmas Day and sending all our good wishes to everybody back down on our beautiful planet Earth.”
You can check out their satellite position here: http://iss.astroviewer.net
I can say I've been some cool places for Christmas, but never as cool as space.
Space nerds, check it out.

Where are you celebrating the Holidays this year?

So cool. I always look forward to their videos home every year. Because, obviously, I'm a geek. Lol @EasternShell @VeronicaArtino I'm sorry the weather wasn't the best, guys! Our Christmas weather was very Christmasy. It still is, actually. Very cold, clear, flurries. 😋

@nicolejb it's all about the altitude. :) I'm high altitude in the mountains. We live on a mountain that has a ski resort at the top of it. My studio is in the town at the bottom and our home is midway up. We spent most of the holiday skiing and enjoying the weather. Other than the winter, when everyone comes up from LA, it's nice and quiet, just the way I like it, but still close to the city.
