We knew Star Wars was out of this World, but now the fandom has literally been taken to outer space.

Astronaut Scott Kelly tweeted out a picture Friday morning of the sun rising over the Earth with the caption: Funny how the (hash) sunrise resembles a light saber.


The tweet comes hours after hundreds of people across the country filled theaters to be among the first to see the latest Star Wars film, The Force Awakens.

If anything else, it's an awesome picture.
