On Monday, astronaut Chris Hadfield - the first Canadian commander of a spaceship - will return to Earth with fellow astronauts Roman Romanenko and Tom Marshburn. The three have been aboard the International Space Station for the past five months.

Below, see photos of Earth that Hadfield snapped from outer space:

Taking advantage of a weightless environment onboard the Earth-orbiting International Space Station, Hadfield juggles some tomatoes, which he probably considers to be among the more delicious components of a recent "package" that arrived from Earth.
