When NASA astronaut Scott Kelly touches down on Earth on Tuesday, he will have spent nearly an entire year aboard the International Space Station.

According to Mashable, Scott’s 340 days orbiting our planet is the longest continuous time any American has ever spent in space.

During his time up there he’s conducted multiple spacewalks, taken selfies lit by the glow of the Earth, and eaten some pretty grim looking space tacos.

So, as you can imagine, his Instagram and Twitter feed are about as spectacular as it gets and they gave us a stunningly beautiful perspective of our world on a daily basis.

So here’s a selection of some of Scott’s absolutely out of this world photos:
