We're quite privileged here in this country without very much realising it.

Not only does much of the world turn green on our national day, we also get recognition from the cosmos. 

It's become almost an annual tradition for astronauts aboard the International Space Station to tweet images of the country on St Patrick's Day. 

And today, Terry W. Virts hasn't let us down. 

The astronaut tweet his and the crews' 'best wishes' from the e43 group. 

It wasn't the first time, however. 

Last year, Commander Hadfield tweeted these shots from the International Space Station. 

Awesome...
