A view of Tucson from space ~

I had the great pleasure of attending a "Star Party" and the scientists there were talking about the remarkable photos taken of Earth from the spacecraft Cassini. Here the earth - a tiny blue dot - is seen as Cassini was near Saturn - almost a billion miles from Earth. Quite an amazing perspective on things!


  1. I find astronomy fascinating. Have you ever attended an evening program at Kitt Peak? I highly recommend going.
