The view from space is just out of this world.

NASA astronaut Victor Glover, one of the four astronauts aboard the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule, posted a video on Twitter of the stunning view from Earth on his first-ever trip to space.

"My first video from space! Looking at the Earth through the window of Dragon Resilience," Glover said on Twitter. "The scale of detail and sensory inputs made this a breathtaking perspective!"

The video shows Glover sitting by a window soaking in the view from outer space. The astronaut, who is serving as a pilot and second-in-command on the Dragon, said the view was amazing but the video "doesn't do it justice."

NASA astronauts Michael Hopkins and Shannon Walker and Japanese astronaut Soichi Noguchi are also members of the mission, called Crew-1.

It marks the second-ever crewed flight of a SpaceX spacecraft.

Earlier this week, Glover also tweeted a photo of his "new home," where he will spend the upcoming months working from the International Space Station.

While more than a dozen Black Americans have traveled to space since Guion Bluford became the first to do so in 1983, Glover is the first Black full-time crew member on the ISS.

The spacecraft soared into outer space from Florida's Kennedy Space Center -- marking the kick off of what NASA hopes will be years of the company helping to keep the International Space Station fully staffed. The Crew Dragon docked with the International Space Station on November 16.

The Crew-1 astronauts are expected to spend about six months on board the ISS, where they'll work on a variety of science experiments and conduct space walks to continue updates and repairs on the space station's exterior.
