A Large Portion of Cloud-Covered Planet Earth Is Reflected In the Helmet Visor of NASA Astronaut Clayton C. Anderson, the International Space Station (Expedition 15) Flight Engineer, August 15, 2007

Imagine you're in space watching this small blue planet...can you feel it? there's something more out there in space...that's our destiny...we have to resolve things in our planet...achieve peace and live all together with love...
Tell me,
When you look to the sky, and you contemplate the stars, don't you feel it?
Don't you?
What do you feel?

It's really unbelievable to me that I could ever be far enough from the Earth to be able to take a picture of the entire thing (at least my viewing side). Everything I've ever know up to that point would be just so small.

Scary and amazing at the same time.

Great shot for sure!

being lucky enough to be a member of the astronomical society in our town,
I often get to spend lots of time under the milky way, in all it's glory.

Often times I dont even bother with the telescopes.

I just sit under the open sky and feel it as I watch it.
and I certainly do feel it.

I feel a sense of 'realness', a sense of "home", a sense of 'tomorrow', and a sense of 'yesterday', and of wonder and fascination, I feel a sense of well being and comfort... a sense of past, and of future.. it reminds me of when I was a young child. 'Nostalgic' I guess is a word for it.

But i never did much like this when I was a child, except for looking up at the stars.
So Im not sure if it's really 'nostalgia'.. or something else.
[i sometimes think, that perhaps it is from when we were nothing but stars in the cosmos, and that is why i feel "nostalgic" from it]. lol
a sort of "remembering ones past"...

at the observatory, I often lay down on one of the picnic tables outside, and as the sky (Earth) moves.. I feel as if i am swimming through the cosmos, and in those moments, nothing else seems to matter.
Everything is exactly as it should be, even if we (i) dont understand it.

I feel that is where we were yesterday..
and that is where we will be returning to, tomorrow.

*ad astra per aspera*
~to the stars through difficulties, my friends.
