Earth Day

less than 1 minute read

A day late. Yesterday was Earth day. I don’t go out of my way to celebrate, but I try to do my small part to help the planet when I can. After all, it’s all we have.

I saw this picture taken by the Cassini spacecraft and was reminded how important our world is. A small snippet from the article:

This view from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft shows planet Earth as a point of light between the icy rings of Saturn. The spacecraft captured the view on April 12, 2017 at 10:41 p.m. PDT (1:41 a.m. EDT). Cassini was 870 million miles (1.4 billion kilometers) away from Earth when the image was taken. Although far too small to be visible in the image, the part of Earth facing toward Cassini at the time was the southern Atlantic Ocean.

The image kinda makes our problems seem insignificant.
