Not all of us can be astronauts, but Reid Wiseman gives us the next best thing.

Being an astronaut is serious business. It's also magical, fun and unbelievably beautiful.

We can thank NASA astronaut Reid Wiseman for taking us up into space with him through a series of awe-inspiring, funny and just plain out of this world #SpaceVine videos.

Wiseman heads back to terra firma today, Nov. 9, but he didn't leave space before posting one last Vine of sunset in orbit:


Wiseman's #SpaceVine clips cover everything from science to whimsy. Check out a few highlights:

After 166 days in space, Wiseman made sure he got the most of out his last days:

Thanks for bringing us up with you, Reid Wiseman.

Each one of Wiseman's space posts is more beautiful and jaw-dropping than the next. Visit his Twitter page, @astro_reid, for pictures like London on a clear day, Abu Dhabi's soaring buildings visible from space, the red sands of Africa and an active volcano in Mexico.
