I have to say that is an amazing picture. Its almost surreal. You know that it is a real photo but part of you cant believe that it is. Its a photo taken millions of miles away from the earth and potrays Saturn in such beauty.

But the image that gets me most is of earth. That everything contained on earth: cultures, religions, people, animals. Are nothing more than a few pixels accross at this scale.

Blows you away it does... you can even see the blur of the Moon on that zoomed in image. Puts a scale on things it really does.

Glad you all enjoyed :( The reality of space never ceases to bring a sense of wonder and awe and it really brings home how tiny and insignificant we are.
