The Wonderment of a Child | #CatchLuca Twist

3 year-old Ruby waving at ISS passing over Australia, from Susan.

This week, Susan of Australia found a creative way to share her family’s experience catching Astronaut Luca Parmitano. Instead of submitting a photo of the ISS itself, she shared a photo of her 3 year-old daughter Ruby waving in awe and wonderment that there are people living in space flying over her head. Think about it: Ruby has never lived in a world where every human was living on earth. This picture is a great reminder that seeing the ISS is absolutely magical – no matter how old you are! People from all over the world continue to share their awe-inspiring photos – and I am so happy to share them with you!

For many of us catching Luca amounts to catching a small light in the sky. Photographing the ISS is difficult to do and I am always impressed with anyone who can catch him, especially when using an iPhone or small camera. Thanks Valentina for catching Luca and sharing. I love this blip in the sky!
