WASHINGTON (WFSB) -

Astronaut Scott Kelly posted a colorful shot of the planet on Monday morning.

"#GoodMorning #USA and #Canada!" Kelly posted to the social media website Twitter. "You were very colorful this morning. #YearInSpace."

Kelly is currently spending a year in space aboard the International Space Station with a Russian cosmonaut, according to NASA.

NASA called the mission "Expedition 43."

He launched this past spring and is expected to return in March 2016.
