CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A new photo of Chicago taken from space is taking the internet by storm.

The picture was taken from the international space station by Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield. He posted the photo on his Twitter page Saturday, saying, "Chicago, a bright spot on the tip of Lake Michigan, glowing through the crowds. pic.twitter.com/ozMHff9OZb"

The photo, which has been shared more than 1,200 times, shows the city at night illuminated in lights.

Earlier in March, Hadfield tweeted another aerial picture from orbit: "Chicago on a clear winter's day, ice on the shore, busy O'Hare airport visible from orbit. pic.twitter.com/wICzMP7kKA."
