1. The tiny blue dot in the lower part of the picture is our Earth seen from behind Saturn’s rings. The photograph was taken on July 19 by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft, which is orbiting Saturn. 
    NASA wants to pay homage to Carl Sagan’s “Pale Blue Dot”, taken by the Voyager 1 spacecraft in 1990 and put our place in the universe into perspective.. everything we are, past and present, exists and has taken place on this tiny blue dot.. pretty humbling!
