(CNN/INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION) — Have you seen this selfie yet?

It’s literally out of this world.

That’s astronaut Rick Mastracchio at the International Space Station.

Mastracchio posted this awesome shot of himself with the Earth and its horizon in the background on Twitter Wednesday.

He was on a spacewalk at the ISS at the time he snapped the picture.

He says the spacesuit he’s wearing makes it hard to take selfies in space.
