Astronaut Who Tweeted Golden Gate Pic Snaps Larkspur, Corte Madera Again

Astronaut Chris Hadfield tweeted a photo of the Golden Gate in January, and he tweeted one Sunday that shows more of the Bay Area.

The Canadian astronaut who tweeted a photo of the Golden Gate from space in January is still snapping away, and on Sunday he tweeted a photo that includes Larkspur, Corte Madera and more of the Bay Area.

"San Francisco, home of the @49ers - good luck in the game today!" Astronaut Chris Hadfield tweeted Sunday before the Super Bowl. He also tweeted a photo of Baltimore by Commander Kevin Ford and wished the Ravens luck as well.

According to the Canadian Space Agency, Hadfield launched aboard a Soyuz spacecraft on Dec. 19 for his ride to the Space Station.

Hadfield is enjoying the views from orbit, and a lot of people on Earth are digging it with him. In late January he tweeted:

"A quarter million people, following these Tweets from orbit! I am honoured and humbled. Thanks to each of you for your interest and support!"

As of Wednesday Feb. 6, he had more than 324,000 followers, according to Twitter.

Hadfield is expecting to remain in space at least three more months. In March he will take over as first Canadian commander of the International Space Station. His targeted landing date is May 14, 2013.
