Time-lapse: Earth

As the Guardian’s GrrlScientist says, “Wow. Just wow.”  And, “Oh, I recommend “full screen” mode.” Indeed. Adds – If you watch closely you can see Ireland and the UK pass underneath at around 2mins 30secs in.

    truly stunning, as for the reason these threads don’t get many comments imho we (owc/occupied six types) are not keen on the idea that we may not be the centre of the universe…

    Well, it only took 6 comments for someone to get a “Themmuns” dig in….. tragic.

    Things like that make you see the planet as small and interconnected beyond comprehension.

    Reminds me of the quote from JFK:

    “Our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this planet. We all breathe the same air.”
