has nothing to do with that no one has ever seen stars in space only from earth
"I feel this powerfully -- not as fear or loneliness -- but as awareness, anticipation, satisfaction, confidence, almost exultation.
I like the feeling. Outside my window I can see stars -- and that is all. Where I know the moon to be, there is simply a black void, the moon's presence is defined solely by the absence of stars."

ATS 1 and 3 were in geostationary orbit taking high resolution images of Earth.
I'd watch a cable channel view of Earth, much better than most of the cr&p they show!
