French astronaut Thomas Pesquet left Earth in mid-November 2016 on a 196-day mission on the International Space Station. On Friday he's coming back down to earth.
 
Thankfully for us earthlings, the astronaut proved to be a keen social media user during his trip.
 
His photos of France from above the earth gave the French a new look at their country.
 
Here are some spectacular images he captured of France while he was up among the stars. 
 

The photo below shows the town of Lorient in Brittany, western France.
