    I have an earlier picture from Cassini of Saturn and rings with the Earth as a single green pixel as my desktop.

    And I felt severely insignificant when I sailed the Atlantic on a 42' sailboat in 1988.

    That’s an impressive picture. I downloaded and blew it up and you can kinda see a light couple of pixels next to the Earth. That might be the Moon.

    Either way, it’s a very cool picture. :)

    Some of the best views of the night sky I’ve ever seen was from the bridge of my submarine in the middle of the Atlantic. With the nearest light several thousand miles away the stars were like a blanket in the sky. As a kid from north Jersey, I had no idea you could see so many stars in the night sky.

    While we saw amazing things on the 1998 sailing trip, nothing compares to the first night I walked up on deck in July, 2005, in the Galapagos Islands.

    The Milky Way was just like Mickey Mouse threw all those stars up in the beginning of Disney. Billions and Billions . . . (thanks, Carl)

    There were some international crew that said they had never seen a star . . too hazy.

    Scary.
