An American astronaut spending the Fourth of July in space wished the United States a happy Independence Day from orbit on Sunday.

NASA astronaut Douglas Wheelock posted his July 4th messages and photos on Twitter, where he writes as Astro_Wheels, to mark the U.S. holiday on the International Space Station (ISS).

“Happy 4th of July!” wrote Wheelock, who is a colonel in the U.S. Army. “Celebrating Independence Day morning in the Russian ‘Service Module’, the ISS Command Post.” [Wheelock’s Fourth of July space photo.]
