(CNN) –  Have you ever gotten a phone call from a wrong number?  Well one woman got quite the surprise when she answered the telephone and it was a wrong number, from space!

International Space Station Astronaut Tim Peake recently phoned home — as in Earth — but he got the number wrong.

“Hello, is this planet Earth?” Peake asked.

When he realized he’d misdialed, Peake tweeted his regret.

“I’d like to apologise to the lady I just called by mistake saying ‘Hello, is this planet Earth?’ – not a prank call…just a wrong number!” he tweeted.

So somewhere here on Earth is a woman who is either very annoyed or surprised beyond belief.
