4-year-old girl recreates astronaut Leland Melvin's viral portrait
Melvin says the image warms his heart
A young girl is melting hearts this year for Halloween by recreating the viral image of Astronaut Leland Melvin and his dogs.
On Saturday, Andrew Miller took to Twitter and shared the precious photo of his 4-year-old daughter's Halloween costume.
Astronaut Melvin re-tweeted the image and appreciated the father recreating the photo he took years ago.
This image warms my heart. So appreciative of you getting the shot I got many years ago. Thank you. 🚀🚀 https://t.co/gsTq8yq4n1— Leland Melvin (@Astro_Flow) October 29, 2017
The portrait was taken in 2009 but brought joy to the internet last February when the unofficial Rogue NASA account tweeted Melvin’s photos.

The astronaut was all smiles next to his two rescue dogs cuddling and kissing him. But the love for the retired astronaut does not end there. Melvin shared a photo on Twitter of a young boy wearing a flight suit hoodie next to his portrait.
Young Leland wearing his Flight suit hoodie for the first time told his mom that people might mistake him for me. Our 🌎 is in good hands❤️🙏🏾 pic.twitter.com/KY4pirBXUV— Leland Melvin (@Astro_Flow) October 30, 2017
The response on Twitter is filled with continuous love for humanity.
The world's a better place with lots of youngsters like Leland in it.— Colin Rowley (@ColinRowley1) October 30, 2017
Take notice adults! The children can still teach you how to see the world, if you look through their eyes!— Annie (@CasseArk) October 30, 2017
