A Canadian astronaut has captured images of the Queensland floods from a unique angle.

Chris Hadfield took photos of the floods while passing over central Queensland in the International Space Station on Tuesday, sharing them with the world via Twitter. The 54-year-old space veteran has been aboard the ISS since December 19, and is part of a five-month mission to carry out scientific experiments. Commander Hadfield has been sharing his adventures daily on social networking sites.
