Perspective

The old saying goes that a picture can say a thousand words, but some say many more than that. Some rare pictures say an infinite number of words. So many, in fact, that every time you look at them you are just as mesmerized as the first. The earth rise from the surface of the moon was always one of those for me. Everytime I look at it I try to imagine what the astronauts seeing the earth as a dot on the horizon must have felt about our place in the universe. Surely they have perspective stamped into their consciousness that none of the rest of us can ever duplicate. This video of Juno screaming past earth reminded me of that photo. I'd love to get some comments on this one...
